Course description

Horizontal and Multilateral Wells: Completions and Stimulation - In-house training by PetroSkills

This course can be conducted on site at your location exclusively for your staff. 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.
