Subsurface Surface Production Optimization

A production system is the system that transports reservoir fluid from the subsurface to the surface and separates it into oil, gas, and water. From there the oil and gas streams are treated if necessary and prepared for sale or transport from the field. Any water produced will also treated and prepared for disposal or reinjection into the reservoir. The basic elements of a production system are the reservoir, perforations, production packer, production casing, tubing, wellhead, choke, flowline, separator, and tank.

This course will provide participants with the knowledge of integrated subsurface surface production optimization.  During this course, participants will also learn about nodal analysis and the identification of major pressure losses from the reservoir to separator.  The use of specialized software to identify constraints and to propose recommendations to optimize the field will also be covered.

    Day 1

    Integrated Production Systems and Production Processes 

    • Production system loops
    • Well completion and production methods
    • Production well test     
    • Gathering and processing facilities

    The first day will cover an overview of the production system from the reservoir to the surface.  The integrated production system will be reviewed.  Participants will learn about the different production completions, lifting methods, gathering and separation systems, and production well tests.  Processing facilities will also be discussed.

    Day 2

    Nodal Analysis 

    • Main components of pressure drop
    • Inflow Performance Relationship (IPR): reservoir, completion
    • Subsurface to surface system
    • Flow rates in pipes and restrictions

    On the second day, participants will learn about nodal analysis, to include the different main components of pressure drops, such as static, friction, and acceleration.  Inflow performance relations (IPR), tubing performance curve, subsurface to surface system graphs, wellhead flow, wellhead flow curve, and gas well production behavior will also be covered.  The day will end with a discussion on flow rates in pipes and restrictions, as well as flow line curve.   

    Day 3

    Subsurface Surface Production Operation

    • Identification of restrictions and correctives actions
    • Performance management
    • Advanced optimization applications
    • Integrated subsurface surface automation concept       

    Subsurface surface production operations will be the focus on the third day.  Specific topics that will be covered on this day include integrated operation procedures, best practices, identification of restrictions and corrective actions, and the production optimization using automation technology.  The identification of added value to business, available and operated production, performance management, control and follow up systems will also be covered.  The day will end with a discussion on advanced optimization applications, integrated subsurface surface automation concepts, and compression plants deferred reduction case.        

    Day 4

    Integrated Application System and Production System Modeling 

    • Integrated application systems
    • Software used in Industry
    • Production system modeling
    • Examples using PIPESIM

    Day four will cover the integrated application system and production system modeling.  Participants will learn about the used in the oil industry for integrated production system.  Well model to surface model integration, data acquisition and control, and case studies will be covered for production system modeling.  The day will end with participants seeing examples using PIPESIM.

    Day 5

    Technological Trends and Integrated Information Systems

    • Well instrumentation technology
    • Oil and gas production applications
    • Smart wells and fields

    On the last day, participants will learn about the technological trends for integrated production optimization.  The trends discussed will include smart wells, well instrumentation technology, and smart fields.  Integrated information systems will also be discussed.  The integrated information environment, problems of integration, and production data management will be covered on this day as well.

  • Location


    Bandung is the capital of West Java province in Indonesia. Located 768 m (2,520 ft) above sea level, Bandung has relatively year-around cooler temperature than most other Indonesian cities

    Bandung Sky Line

    Bandung is renowned for its large stock of Dutch colonial architecture; most notably the tropical Art Deco architectural style. The modern and native architectural blending was followed by several Dutch architects that have shaped the city landmarks. In the 1930s, Bandung was known also as the city of architecture laboratory because of many Dutch architects made some experiments with new architectural designs.

    Bandung has served for popular weekend-break destination for people living in Jakarta for many reasons. The cooler climate of highland plantation area, the varieties of food, the cheaper fashion shops located in factory outlets and distros, golf courses, and the friendliness of local people have become the main attraction of the city.

    Bandung Husein Sastranegara International Airport serves direct flights to Batam, Surabaya, Yogyakarta, Denpasar, Palembang and Padang and also international services from Kuala Lumpur and Singapore Changi Airport. The airport is located nearby the Dirgantara aerospace complex and Dirgantara Fairground.
