SPT believes in engaging with our customers because this helps us develop products that efficiently address real problems. To this end we have initiated several joint industry projects (JIPs) aimed at building on the MEPO framework to address specific industry challenges for which no adequate solution currently exists.
The MEPO FORWARD I JIP focused on the area of production optimisation and field management and was run in partnership with BG, ConocoPhillips, ENI and Statoil.
The MEPO FORWARD II JIP started in late 2011 and looks at the development of enhanced optimisation techniques and workflows with application to integrated modelling. Current partners are BG, DONG, ENI and Total but is still open to further participants.
