Well Stimulation

This is a practical 5-days course to be delivered in MLC.

The course includes revision of theory on Matrix Acidizing and on Hydraulic Fracturing, and practical classes on laboratory procedures and operational procedures, utilising pumping and mixing pads, for familiarization with the supervision of operations at well site.

At the end of the course, Participants will be able to discuss with Service Companies the Execution and the Safety of Matrix Acidizing and Fracturing operations.

    Day 5

    • New technology in Acidizing and Fracturing
    • Last day quiz
    • Round Table
  • Topics

    • Revision of basic Matrix Acidizing theory
    • Revision of basic Hydraulic Fracturing theory
    • Laboratory tests for Matrix Acidizing
    • Work with mixing and pumping equipment in dedicated pads in MLC
    • Brief introduction to new technologies in the disciplines. 
  • Audience

    Professionals requiring basic training on the Supervision of Acidizing and Fracturing interventions.

  • Prerequisites

    Basic understanding of well completions and architecture, and basic concepts of geoscience. Before this course, Participants have already passed in classes where these concepts have been discussed.

    This course is not redundant with classes previous attended, instead it introduces a practical approach to the Supervision of these operations.
