Horizontal and Multilateral Wells: Completions and Stimulation

The 5-day course discusses the completion methods of horizontal and multilateral wells and respective performance, presenting Hydraulic Fracturing as a completion technique and Matrix Acidizing as a mitigation method for formation damage. The course integrates theory and exercises (equations and specialized software) to facilitate comprehension and improve appliance. 


A 1st Day quiz will enable the instructor to orient the course and optimize delivery, and a Last Day quiz will evaluate progress.
