What you will learn

  1. Learn about an overview of the industry and how the roles of different professional disciplines are integrated to generate development plans.
  2. Understand subsurface geology to learn how economic  oil/gas fields are formed and discovered
  3. Learn how subsurface rock samples are collected and the various laboratory conducted to define their physical properties which will be used by the engineer to prepare drilling and completion programs.
  4. Fluid sampling; including oil, gas, and formation water, will be discussed.   The various laboratory tests conducted on the fluid samples are reviewed and how engineers use this information to make decision on how oil and gas fields will be developed to achieve the best economic benefits.
  5. How wells are drilled, including different drilling techniques; rotary, top drive, and sliding rotary steerable.  The function of the drilling rig equipment, down-equipment, and the mud are discussed.
  6. Learn about completion techniques for vertical and horizontal wells to allow for safe operation and to control production.
  7. How engineers/geologists determine oil/gas reserves, which define the value of E&P companies.
  8. A review of the decisions that need to be made to develop oil/gas field with special sections on artificial lifts (down-hole pumps) and Hz well applications.
  9. How to diagnose production problem and perform remedial action.
  10. The application of different Enhanced Oil Recovery EOR schemes and benefits.
  11. The use of Multi-stage frac Hz wells in tight and unconventional formations.
  12. How economic analysis is performed to confirm that proposed projects will economic benefits

Description

This course 4-day training is designed to provide non-engineering petroleum industry technical professionals with a thorough overview of most key aspects of petroleum engineering technology and its applications. The course addresses engineering issues ranging from initial involvement with explorationists, reserves evaluation and field development, production optimization, and all the aspects of well drilling and completion for on-shore and off-shore fields. The sessions will focus on relevant and practical issues; including real case studies.
