  • To provide the knowledge and skills needed to choose and operate completion equipment for flowing wells
Learning Objectives
  • To assess which equipment is required in a conventional case
  • To design the corresponding completion procedure
  • To acquire know-how needed to work on complex completion issues with specialists
Ways and means
  • Equipment and cutaway tools display in Pau
  • For in-house courses held elsewhere, inasmuch as a completion shop is made available, a visit will be organized to the said shop
  • Summary notes prepared and presented by the participants
  • Application to a real case (project) for the participants in the “Drilling and Completion Engineering” training course (E-412)

Well-completion preparation & implementation 1.5 days
  • Preparing for operations
  • Safety recommendations during completion operations
  • Standard running-in and start-up steps
