    Well Productivity and Enhancement

    This five day course will cover well performance and productivity.   Specific topics that will be covered include, well inflow and outflow performance,  NODAL analysis, well surveillance, and problem diagnostics.  Participants will also learn about productivity enhancement by stimulation, work over, sand management, corrosion control, and artificial lifting. 

    Day 1

    Well Performance 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.

    Day 2

    Well Surveillance and Problem Well Identification

    • 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 different stages of well drilling.  Sand production, control, and productivity effects along with water production, control, and productivity effects will also be covered.      

    Day 3

    Productivity Enhancement

    • Well intervention 
    • Matrix stimulation 
    • Hydraulic fracturing 
    • Candidate selection and stimulation exercise 

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

    Day 4

    Productivity Enhancement (cont.) and Well Controls

    • 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 as well as well controls.  Once the presentations and discussion from the candidate selection exercise is completed, the course will move onto discuss tubing techniques, workover (Rig), sand management, corrosion monitoring and control, and the control of paraffins, asphaltenes, and hydrates.  The day will end with scale deposition, control, and removal.                 

    Day 5

    Artificial Lift and Electrical Submersible Pumps (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.
