Learning Objectives

  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • build a PVT model which will be used in a well performance study,
  • analyze the link between reservoir characteristics and production,
  • model and analyze crucial parameters of well performance,
  • identify reasons for poor well performance,
  • select and design the adequate artificial lift methods.

Ways & Means

  • Multimedia online learning with personal coaching.
  • Before training starts, 2 hours are dedicated to introduce the training agenda, methods and tools.
  • The exact needs and expectations of each participant are also assessed and discussed (MCQ and phone interview with the tutor).
  • During the training, individual phone contact with the tutor and web conferences with other participants.
  • Use of the software program PROSPER™ (license not provided).
