The model used for Pipeline Gathering System optimization should reflect the system your company is constructing by specifying the type of pipeline to be built, ensuring development lines up with potential assets.
When constructing a pipeline network, take into account the state of the field being developed. Are there existing pipelines that can be tied into? Is this a greenfield scenario? These answers may determine the best routes.
Integrated Geomancy can include as many supplemental datasets and constraints as your team wishes to include. Enhance your model and optimization results by exploring which variables are most often used.
The approach taken when deriving the Pipeline Gathering System network will differ depending on the area - or future outlook of the area - in play. Take into account variables like existing infrastructure to properly tie together the system.
To help generate Pipeline Gathering System routes in an environment as realistic as possible, we encourage you to include as many and as varied input spatial datasets within the Integrated Geomancy model as you have available. This input is used to generate surface models off of which optimization will be based.
