    Advanced Well Testing Operations - ELC

    The course will be held at SLB's European Learning Center (ELC) training facility in Melun, France.

    This course is built on the previous practical knowledge assimilated during the Fundamentals of Well Testing Operations class. In each of the element constituting a well testing operation, we will focus on the aspects of job planning, job design and safe execution of each component of the operation. This class is mostly classroom based but will include some exposure sessions in the training center pads and workshops. Some software will be used and practiced during this course.

    Throughout this course, safety will be a primary focus and participants will be shown HSE best practices that should be implemented during each phase of well testing operations.
