Optimum gas delivery contracts are those which maximise gas production whilst minimising penalties caused by insufficient well capacity to meet contracted demand. The method of stochastic simulation is described for predicting seasonal and daily gas demand together with techniques derived from the boundary element method for the modelling of reservoir deliverability performance. These two methodolgies are combined to give a robust procedure for the nomination of contractual gas delivery quantities.
