This course provides a comprehensive overview of completion and well intervention operations.
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.
No pre-requisistes are necessary to follow this course.
NECESSARY FUNDAMENTALS OF RESERVOIR ENGINEERING FOR COMPLETION
Introduction: area concerned by completion, main steps.
Geological trap, rock properties.
Reservoir characterization, well testing.
NECESSARY FUNDAMENTALS OF DRILLING FOR COMPLETION
Drilling and casing program, casing cementing.
Wellhead and safety equipment (BOP).
INTRODUCTION TO COMPLETION
Concerned area, main steps (for memory).
Main factors influencing completion design.
Completion configurations: requirement, main configurations.
WELL PRODUCTIVITY & RESERVOIR-WELLBORE INTERFACE (Part 1)
Overall approach of the well flow capacity:
Inflow and outflow performance.
Need for artificial lift.
Drilling (and casing) of the pay zone: specific aspects.
Problems linked to restoring the cement job.
Perforating: principle, main methods.
EQUIPMENT OF NATURALLY FLOWING WELLS
Functions to be carried out and corresponding pieces of equipment, main configurations of production string(s).
Technology and handling of main pieces of equipment: production wellhead, tubing, packer, downhole devices, subsurface safety valve.
Sucker rod pumping and electrical submersible pumping: principle, main components, factor to consider for design, operating problems.
Continuous gas lift: principle, factors to consider for design, unloading, operating problems.
Field of application.
WELL SERVICING & WORKOVER
Main jobs: measurement, maintenance, workover.
Operations on live wells: wireline, coiled tubing, snubbing.
Operations on killed wells: workover.
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.
Ways & Means
Well control on a simulator.
Equipment and cutaway tools display.
Exercises, role-playing sessions, project and case studies.
Summary notes prepared and presented by the participants.
