IDENTIFYING THE TYST IN A CASE STUDY: THE CASE OF ORBY
The process of TYST can be used to explain the encroachment into the Orby field.
THE FIELD TEST: SIMULATING THE TYST MODEL FOR THE ORBY FIELD
Here the TYST behaviour is converted and applied for the Orby case.
The correlation between the simulated TYST model and the field observations are a strong indication that this model behaviour is at work here in the formulation suggested.
Considering the correlation between historical and modelled values for encroachment on the Orby field, a simple model based on the TYST behaviour was used to predict the behaviour of the Orby system within a span of 100 years from today.
Understanding the behaviour of TYST and when it occurs is important in understanding how to handle many critical situations, prevent adverse conflicts or succeed in preserving important resources and assets in management and planning.
For a TYST system, the encroachment prevention option exists only on the overarching level.
The discovery of the TYST behaviour was only possible due to the clear definition of the system boundaries, which enabled the necessary transparency to place the behaviour on two levels, that is the overarching and the lower system scale in the Orby case.
The Orby field case study illustrates a real life manifestation of the TYST behaviour.
For instance, negotiations can be viewed through the TYST process.
We are not the first to observe the TYST phenomenon (Kahn, 1966; Odum, 1982; Burnell, 2002) but here it gets its first systematic interpretation.
