Flow Assurance Training Program

  The flow assurance training program provides the participants a deep understanding of the Impediment to flow caused by either fluid phase behavior coupled with the dynamics of flow and/or production-chemistry-related issues in the wellbores, well, flow lines and processing facilities. The program includes a combination of theoretical classes with practical exercises and case studies on how to identify, prevent, control and remediate the problems caused by the behavior of the fluids from pore to process. The interaction with software knowledge and its application provides step-by-step instructions to build and run steady state and transient simulation models on flow assurance.

Description of course progression
