Who should attend?

Audience

    • Engineers (particularly recently graduated field, design or project engineers) interested in a specialization in Oil & Gas surface production operations.

Level

  • Foundation
  • To provide the in-depth technical knowledge of Oil & Gas production facilities design and operation necessary to hold rapidly, and very effectively, the position of field operations engineer or project engineer.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • grasp fundamentals of reservoir engineering, drilling, well completion and servicing,
  • evaluate well performance and identify needs for artificial lift,
  • explain fundamental concepts underlying Oil & Gas processing,
  • analyze operating conditions and basic design of oil, water and gas treatment,
  • describe the technology of static equipment and rotating machinery used in production facilities,
  • identify offshore development techniques and flow assurance issues,
  • identify main risks related to O&G production operations and contribute to process safety management,
  • contribute to the dynamics of field development projects studies.
