E-466 - Well Production Integrity

2 days PRO/WELINT
Level
Proficiency
Audience
  • Drilling, completion and production engineers and technicians.
Purpose
  • This course provides skills in well integrity concepts: “how to keep hydrocarbons in the pipe” by designing, operating and maintaining well equipment to ensure safe containment of all wellbore fluids over the lifetime of a well.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • recognize the importance and the concepts of well integrity,
  • assess the link between well integrity and other key strategic operations,
  • review, focus and design well integrity assurance,
  • appreciate the role of the production technician with regard to well integrity.
Prerequisite
  • No prerequisites for this course.
Ways and means
  • Videos and animations showing how equipment work.
  • Practical exercises and knowledge assessment.

TODAY’S SUCCESSFUL PRODUCTION TECHNICIAN 0.25 day
  • HSE goals.
  • Design decisions made for the well and the relevance of those decisions to their operations.
  • Ways that all surface and subsurface well components work together.
  • Instruments: how the downhole conditions are reflected in the surface.
  • Handovers: strict adherence to site-specific procedures and/or practices.
  • Risks: daily tasks that bring increased risks to well integrity and proactive mitigation of those risks.
  • Problems: deeper knowledge of the well to anticipate problems turn into large scale well integrity incidents.
