E-411 - Well Completion & Servicing

5 days PRO/INPFE
Level
Discovery
Audience
  • Engineers and technicians, from operating or service companies, interested but not involved in well completion or servicing: geologists, geophysicists, reservoir engineers, drillers, production and process staff, platform designers, economists, etc.
Purpose
  • This course provides a comprehensive overview of completion and well intervention operations.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • Recognize the connection between reservoir and completion.
  • Distinguish between the main configurations and techniques of completion.
  • Review advantages and issues of various techniques.
  • Communicate efficiently with Oil & Gas service companies and equipment suppliers.
Prerequisite
  • No prerequisites for this course.
Ways and means
  • Well control on a simulator.
  • Equipment and cutaway tools display.
  • Exercises, role-playing sessions, project and case studies.
  • Summary notes prepared and presented by the participants.
Observation
Kindly refer to the following complementary courses which might be of interest: “Introduction to Reservoir Engineering” (E‑300), “Drilling Fundamentals” (E-410), and “Oil & Gas Field Processing” (E-540).
