Course description

Well Stimulation: Practical and Applied - In-house training by PetroSkills

This course can be conducted on site at your location exclusively for your staff. Too often in today's dynamic oil and gas industry, not enough attention is paid to the details of well stimulation treatments. This can result in poor and / or less than optimum results. Those involved in the planning, execution, and evaluation of stimulation treatments need to have the background and training in the basics so better decisions can be made resulting in more gas down the line or oil in the tank! This practical course is designed for those involved in all aspects of well stimulation. To be better able to make decisions it is important to have a basic understanding of the types of formations and basic reservoir properties with which we deal. For this reason, time is spent in the early portion of the course 'setting the geological and reservoir property stage' for vertical, horizontal and multilateral wells prior to developing the basic formation damage, acidizing, and hydraulic fracturing concepts. The course includes acidizing and fracturing quality control, conducting the treatment, monitoring pressures, and other critical parameters, during and after the treatment. An important part of the course is class teamwork whereby the attendees divide into teams to evaluate and design stimulation treatments. These exercises bring out many important parameters discussed during the course. This subject is briefly covered in the PetroSkills Production Operations 1 course (Foundation Level) as well as in the Formation Damage: Causes, Prevention and Remediation (Intermediate Level) course. However, this course is more concentrated, detailed and applied in the subject matter than either of the other courses
