Introduction to Intelligent Completions Workshop

This course is delivered as a workshop; it is composed of two parts:

The first two days consist in the presentation of benefits and limitations of IC, different types of IC and discusion of IntelliZone Compact (Schlumberger technology). 

During the following three days, Participants, using reservoir and well completions data previously collected, will exercise the optimization of well completions using the concepts learnt in first two days.

Participants will be divided in groups of 2 or 3 elements each and will compete to develop the best completion design.

During the last day, the groups present their proposals to Management and the instructor.
