    Open Hole Sand Exclusion - RILS

    This is a virtual course under Remote Instructor Led Series (RILS), delivered in two half-days in daily 4-hour sessions. The course describes fundamentals of Open Hole Sand Exclusion Completions. Being a practical application of these fundamentals, the course starts explaining basic concepts related to Stand Alone Screens (SAS) and Gravel Pack (GP) in Open Hole. The course discusses Design on SAS technique and design principles, and continues with series of training exercises, pedagogically executed, and follows with the development of Gravel Pack in open hole, using low viscosity carrier fluid (alfa and beta waves) and high viscosity carrier fluid (alternate path), followed by a discussion  that can be used in the future as guidelines to solve real challenges.

    Softcopies of the slides will be sent to the Attendants. The Attendants will have to print hardcopies to be used during the lecture; formulas and exercises will be provided electronically in the form of a toolbox - a Practical Companion to Open Hole Sand Exclusion Completions.

    A Toolbox is included in the training materials, with the formulas and methods to be used to solve practical problems of SAS and GP.

    A pre-course quiz will be electronically sent to the Attendants to enable the Instructor to adjust the lecture to optimum effciency, and a last-day quiz will measure improvement.

    At the end of the course, Attendants will become conversant in the applications of Open Hole Sand Exclusions Completions.
