Completions and Production Engineering

4.1 Average client rating (based on 127 attendee reviews)

This 5-day course emphasis the role of the Well, as part of the Integrated Production System for a Hydrocarbon Asset. Well Completion design concepts and the technical selection criteria for the main completion components are reviewed in detail. During the fifth day of the Course, participants are introduced to Economy concepts relevant in Well Interventions and major Workovers (like re-completions).

The course also highlights the Operating Company’s viewpoint in the area of Well Completion and Well Production Management, and group exercises enhance the learning process. 

By the end of the course, participants should 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; Calculate main economy indicators relevant to a workover; Carry out a completion design and explain how it will be run in the well.

  • Audience

    Geo-scientists, Engineers and Managers (in Drilling, Well Intervention/Services, Reservoir Engineering, Production Operations, Marketing/Sales etc.), whose jobs require them to interface with Completion Engineers, Production Technologists, Well Production Operations Engineers, and Well Maintenance/Servicing Engineers who wish to enhance their current job effectiveness, through more knowledge on Well Completion and Performance, than that attained from their own "core" discipline training and exposure.

  • Prerequisites

    It is recommended that Participants should have at least 2 years Oil Industry experience, in the subsurface engineering/operations/management aspects of the E&P business.
