Practical Completions and Production Engineering

This 5-day course emphasizes the role of the Well as part of the Integral Production System for a Hydrocarbon Asset. The concepts of Well Completion design and the technical selection criteria for the main completion components are reviewed in detail. The last is a visit to the workshops and yards of the Schlumberger Middle East and Asia Learning Center (MLC) to familiarize with well completion and well intervention equipment, technologies and tools. Group exercises on Completions and Performance enhance the learning process. The course also highlights the Operating Company's viewpoint in the area of Well Completion and Well Production Management.

By the end of the course, Participants will be able to: state how Well Completions fit into the E&P acivity, recall and discuss hydrocarbon exploitation considerations for well productivity and completion design, describe the main parameters that influence well performance and productivity, describe the factors that influence the selection and design of the completion string and components, and understand how to design a well completion and run it into the well.

Learning activity mix

Geo-scientists, Engineers and Managers (in drilling, well interventions/services, reservoir engineering, production operations, marketing/sales, among others) whose jobs require them to interface with Completion Engineers, Production Technologists, Well Production Operation Engineers and Well Maintenance/Service Engineers, who wish to enhance their current job effectiveness, through more knowledge of Well Completion and Performance, than that attained from their own "core" discipline training and exposure.

It is recommended that Participants have, at least, 2 years experience in the Oil Industry in subsurface engineering/operations/management.
