    Fundamentals of Well Testing Operations - ELC

    The course will be held at SLB's Learning Center.

    It will consist of some theoretical classroom sessions conducted with experienced professional providing

    presentations of well testing equipment, procedures and operations. The participants will then have

    practical exposure sessions using the well testing flow loop and hands on sessions with various well testing

    tools in the training center. It is anticipated that the course will be 50% classroom based and 50% practical

    on the various training pads and workshops.

    The course includes an introduction to well testing equipment and the instrumentation required to control,

    monitor, measure and sample reservoir fluids produced during a typical well test.

    Participants will gain an understanding of the primary objective of surface and downhole well testing which

    is to assess well productivity by measuring gas, oil and water flow rates and pressures under controlled

    production conditions. A major focus during the course is to instill on the participant a thorough

    understanding of safe handling practices of the produced effluents (solids, liquids and gases) at high

    pressures and temperatures.
