Course description

Production Technology for Other Disciplines - In-house training by PetroSkills

This course can be conducted on site at your location exclusively for your staff. This course stresses the production technology required to effectively develop and operate an asset and the role of production engineering in a multi-discipline development project. Practical application of production practices is emphasized. Both theory and actual field examples and well completion programs are presented and studied along with class problems, exercises, and related streaming videos. Well completion equipment and tools are viewed and discussed. Participants will work several exercises such as basic continuous gas lift, ESP, stimulation, gravel pack, and fracturing designs. Nodal analysis problems are set up and solved on the computer and horizontal and multilateral technology is presented. This course includes the use of computers, which are provided at additional cost, for each two participants.
