Petroleum Production & operations engineering

This course emphasis the role of the Well, as part of the Integrated Production System. Well Completion design concepts and the technical selection criteria for the main completion components are reviewed in detail. Group exercises on Completion and Performance as part of the learning process. The course also highlights the Operating Company’s viewpoint in the area of Well Completion and Well Production Management.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to: State how Well Completion fits into the E&P Activity; Recall and discuss hydrocarbon exploitation considerations for well productivity and completion design; Describe the main parameters that influences Well Performance and Productivity; Describe the factors that influence the selection and design of the completion string and components; Carry out a completion design and explain how it will be run in the well.
