Course description

Production Operations 1 - In-house training by PetroSkills

This course can be conducted on site at your location exclusively for your staff. PO1 represents the core foundation of PetroSkills' production engineering course curriculum and is the foundation for future studies. The participant will become familiar with past proven, and, newer technologies, procedures, and techniques to improve and increase oil, gas, and condensate production. The course structure applies a proven methodology, least cost, integrated methods approach that allows engineers to make careful and prudent business decisions. New content to address the basics of unconventional resources, including shale gas and oil, and heavy oil and bitumen has been added.
