Course description

Successful multilateral and horizontal wells require new considerations, interdisciplinary planning, and special techniques. This intense course addresses the critical need for a proper understanding of all aspects of horizontal and multilateral design, completion, and stimulation that make these wells unique. It is designed for those planning or working with horizontal and multilateral wells and interested in effective use of the latest technology. Basic understanding of important reservoir characteristics, hole stability, formation damage, crucial zonal isolation, and hydraulic fracturing are just some of the critical issues addressed by this course. Hydraulic fracturing aspects of unconventional resources plays, including conductivity, proppant selection, and practices, are discussed. A combined practical and technical theme is employed, with emphasis on economy and efficiency in designing, completing, and producing horizontal and multilateral wells.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Completion, production, reservoir, and research engineers; geologists; managers in completion, production, drilling, and exploration; others involved in various phases of horizontal and multilateral wells or interested in gaining an interdisciplinary up-to-date understanding of this continually evolving technology.
