Successful Well Completion and Workover Practices: A

Practical Approach from Design to Field Operations


COURSE DESCRIPTION
 

Course Introduction:
 

Well completion is considered to be one of the most critical practices for reservoir exploitation and management.
During this process, the responsible personnel is tasked to optimally design and install a system that can deliver its
full potential to optimize oil, gas and production without compromising safety and reliability. During the field life
cycle, some reservoirs undergo some physical and chemical changes. This leads to loss of revenue as the wells are
no longer operating at their optimal conditions. Hence, workover and well intervention practices are required to safely
and efficiently restore the wells back to the production.

This presents a lot of challenges due to the different reservoir fluids, different operating conditions and different
operating environments.

This is a practical oriented course designed to bridge the knowledge gap in the area well completion and workover. It
process the following features:

Successful Well Completion and Workover Practices: A
Practical Approach from Design to Field Operations
It is first of its kind in the industry.
It is loaded with practical examples, case studies and industrial applications from different operating

·         environment (land, swamp, offshore, including deepwater offshore) from different climates 

It provides practical exercises. Delegates are followed up to ensure they can handle all the calculations,
without difficulties.
It could be designed to meet the need of the clients on specific topics of interest.
In this course you will be given a field project to design. All the elements of the course will help you in your
completion design.
Towards the end of the course the teams formed in the class will present their completion designs for
discussions/reviews.
Delegates are allowed to come with their projects of interest, which they could substitute for the class field
project design work.

This course focuses on different technological innovations to optimize reservoir drilling and completion practices, to
improve well productivity. It provides practical exercises and industrial applications from different operating
environment (land, swamp, offshore, including deepwater offshore). It covers different types of completion design
and installations. In addition, in-depth discussions on the emerging techniques would be covered.
