Who should attend?

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.

Level

  • Discovery
  • 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.
