2 days PRO/WELINT
- Drilling, completion and production engineers and technicians.
- 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.
- 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.
- No prerequisites for this course.
Ways and means
- Videos and animations showing how equipment work.
- Practical exercises and knowledge assessment.
