Well Production Integrity

COMP/WELINT

Who should attend?

  • This course provides skills in well integrity concepts: “how to keep hydrocarbons in the pipe” by designing, operating and maintaining well equipment to ensure safe containment of all wellbore fluids over the lifetime of a well.
Audience :
  • Drilling, completion and production engineers and technicians.

Level : Proficiency

Course Content

  • WELL INTEGRITY DESIGN

      • Well construction/completion: casing, tubing, cement, produced fluids.
      • Wellhead and tree equipment: valves, seals, accessories.
      • Safety valves: downhole, surface.
  • WELL INTEGRITY OPERATIONS

      • Monitoring and managing pressure.
      • Flow assurance: corrosion, sand, deposits.
      • Testing and maintenance: valves, accessories.
  • OPERATIONS: YOUR ROLE

      • Monitor well equipment.
      • Perform well equipment tests.
      • Ensure safety equipment is operational.
      • Remember you are the first line of defense against well integrity failures.
  • WELL INTEGRITY MAINTENANCE

      • All well equipment:
      • Valves.
      • Safety equipment.
      • Seals.
      • Preparation and reinstatement.
  • MAINTENANCE: YOUR ROLE

      • Perform maintenance tasks as assigned by location.
      • Prepare the well for maintenance and well intervention activities.
      • Reinstate the well after maintenance and well intervention activities.
  • INTEGRITY MANAGEMENT

      • Operations on the wellstock.
      • Develop a more complete understanding of the well below the surface.
      • Understand the independence of all well components.
  • TODAY’S SUCCESSFUL PRODUCTION TECHNICIAN

      • HSE goals.
      • Design decisions made for the well and the relevance of those decisions to their operations.
      • Ways that all surface and subsurface well components work together.
      • Instruments: how the downhole conditions are reflected in the surface.
      • Handovers: strict adherence to site-specific procedures and/or practices.
      • Risks: daily tasks that bring increased risks to well integrity and proactive mitigation of those risks.
      • Problems: deeper knowledge of the well to anticipate problems turn into large scale well integrity incidents.
  • KNOWLEDGE ASSESSMENT (workshop)
