    OLGA Well Dynamics (Remote Instructor-Led Series - RILS)

    This course is specifically designed for remote delivery (equivalent to the OLGA Well Dynamics ILT).

    Successful well design and operations require an understanding of transient multiphase flow behavior. The OLGA* Well Dynamics course offers a good balance between well flow dynamics fundamentals and hands-on OLGA software skills. The course helps beginners to quickly grasp the “dynamic flow” concept, learn to run OLGA software independently, and gain a solid foundation for developing advanced modeling capabilities.

    The course teaches you how to build “What if” cases using the OLGA dynamic multiphase flow simulator for basic well design and engineering, to map operational limits, and to establish operational procedures. In addition, you learn about typical operational well events such as shut-down and startup, artificial lift, and clean-up. Each OLGA “What if” case illustrates how transient flow affects the system and how the surroundings can interact with the well.
