Well Productivity and Enhancement (RILS)

This five (5) day course will cover well performance andproductivity. Specific topics that will be covered include, well inflow andoutflow performance, NODAL analysis, well surveillance, and problemdiagnostics. Participants will also learn about productivity enhancement bystimulation, work over, sand management, corrosion control, and artificiallifting.

Wellperformance and productivity

- Well performance and productivity
- Reservoir types and performance
- Perforating and productivity
- Well productivity impairment
- Well inflow & outflow performance
- Total well (NODAL) systems analysis

On the first day, participants will learn about well performance and productivity. Reservoir types and performance, as well as perforating and productivity will also be discussed. Participants will learn about well inflow and outflow performance and the total well (NODAL) system analysis.

Well Surveillance and Problem WellIdentification
- Well surveillance and problem well identification
- Production logging applications and techniques
- Electric and slickline surveys
- Sand production, control, and productivity effects
- Water production, control, and productivity effects

Day two will focus well surveillance and problem well identification.Participants will learn about production logging applications and techniques,electric and slickline
surveys, and the sources and causes of productivity impairment at differentstages of well drilling. Sand production, control, and productivity effectsalong with waterproduction, control, and productivity effects will also be covered.

Productivity Enhancement
- Well intervention
- Matrix stimulation
- Hydraulic fracturing
- Candidate selection and stimulation exercise

On this day, participants will learn about the different types of productivityenhancements. This will include well intervention, matrix stimulation, andhydraulic fracturing.
Candidate selection and stimulation exercises will be done in small groups onthis day.

Productivity Enhancement (cont.) and WellControls
- Well Intervention
- Presentation and discussion of Candidate Selection Exercise
- Tubing techniques and workover (Rig)
- Sand management
- Corrosion monitoring and control
- Control of paraffins, asphaltenes, and hydrates
- Scale deposition, control and removal

Day four will focus on the continued discussion of productivity enhancements aswell as well controls. Once the presentations and discussion from the candidateselection
exercise is completed, the course will move onto discuss tubing techniques,workover (Rig), sand management, corrosion monitoring and control, and thecontrol of
paraffins, asphaltenes, and hydrates. The day will end with scale deposition,control, and removal

Artificial Lift and Electrical SubmersiblePumps (ESP)
- Artificial lift
- Electrical Submersible Pumps (ESP) and other systems
- Exercises on ESP systems
- Final Exam

The last day will cover productivity enhancement through artificial lift.Electrical submersible pumps (ESP) and other systems will also be discussed.After doing exercises
on ESP systems, participants will take their final exam.

Reservoir and production engineers plus those involved in well performance evaluation and modeling.
