INTEGRATED FIELD DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Field development is becoming much more complex and expensive, so getting it right is critical. NExT offers four different FDP
programs, each providing the opportunity to learn fundamental approaches in developing and working an FDP. The program
incorporates the latest technologies and software to enable customers to design a suitable, long-term, and proftable develop-
ment strategy.
NExT offers FDP training that accelerates and transforms technical skills. It
builds expertise in FDP techniques, tools, and workfows that are needed
to address the challenges of feld developments.
This training is unique because it includes theory, software training,
model building, workfows, and an in-class project designed to reinforce
lessons and demonstrate the acquired practical skills and understanding.
The immersive, comprehensive curriculum starts from general
understanding and extends to in-depth feld assessment with economics,
risk, and standard analysis techniques that provide a complete
understanding of FDP.
