Who should attend?

Audience

    • All young engineers involved in exploring, developing and producing unconventional fields.

Level

  • Proficiency
  • This course provides a practical understanding of exploration, drilling & completion, and production techniques & procedures in an unconventional hydrocarbon context.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • assess the unconventional hydrocarbon potential of a basin,
  • define a completion program, assist in and manage on-site operations and design the completion methods of shale gas wells,
  • demonstrate the stimulation techniques (hydraulic fracturing) in shale gas wells,
  • select the relevant characteristics of a shale gas system and related fluid properties to optimize well performance,
  • propose adapted field architecture options and take into account safety aspects,
  • adopt emerging best practices regarding environmental issues and set-up appropriate water management plan,
  • assess risks associated with unconventional field operations and implement appropriate mitigation measures.
