OIlfield Water Management - RILS

This course covers the entireoilfield water cycle with emphasis on the subsurface aspects, including

 

  • Producer performance with water
  • Injector performance
  • Water sweep in the reservoir
  • A review of surface treatment of produced water and water for injection or disposal

Fundamental concepts are introducedso that participants are able to analyze water aspects of field performance andselect suitable solutions.
Presentations are made in a very interactive style where participants areencouraged to think about the issues and contribute with their own experience.Participants are encouraged to bring their own water challenges for discussionin class.  A field case history of the ‘Aquarius’ field is used throughoutthe course so that participants gain experience of hands-on analysis and designin all aspects of the water cycle.
