  • Perforating carbonates
  • Fracturing process and Perforating Methodology
  • High Energy Fracturing Applications
  • Perforating injectors


Attendants will discuss the contents and scope of API Standard RP19B and will be initiated in the techniques of perforating carbonates, perforating for hydraulic fracturing and perforating injector wells.

Day 5

  • Perforating weak sands (for sand control)
  • Perforating weak sands (for sanding prevention)
  • Perforating for production optimization
  • Propellants
  • Last day quiz
  • Round Table


In the last day, attendants will learn the best practices to perforate in weak sands, for sand control completions and for sand management techniques, will discuss production optimization through perforating methods, and will be familiarized with the selection and utilization of propellants.

course methodology

This training course uses both conventional and non-traditional techniques. It utilises small group and facilitated plenary discussions as well as instruction to explore key concepts, models, tools and techniques. Hands-on exercises and case studies are used to practice the application of knowledge and use of skills. Structured reviews provide the opportunity to consider how the learning can be applied to the delegates’ own work.
