Network maximum flow and residual capacity

Network maximum flow and residual capacity

A flow network is a representation of an oil and gas production system – for example from reservoirs through wells, facilities and pipelines to customers.

The maximum flow in a production system depends on its sources and on the combination of constraints – typically these are the capacities of the flow elements and the demand of the customers.

A realistic production forecast must respect the varying capacity constraints over time.  DynamicForecaster can compare forecast cases, to help optimize a business plan for a range of scenarios.
