Brief case study description

A new oil field is prepared for production. Oil pumps are to be installed for crude oil production. There are various types of oil pumps available on the market. They differ in price, surface area requirement, and production capacity.

The problem: Minimize oil pump purchase spending but ensure the required production target. Also, oil field surface area available for pump installation is another constraint that must be considered.

Below is an exemplary satellite image of an oil well field in Texas, USA.
