Why Choose this Training Course?
In the development of a hydrocarbon reservoir, many wells are drilled and required to be completed, to allow the structure to be depleted. However, the drilling and completion operations are crucial to the long-term viability of the wells in meeting the specified objectives. The design and completion of both production and injection wells are required to satisfy several objectives including:
- Provision of optimum production/injection performance.
- Ensure safety.
- Maximize the integrity and reliability of the completion over the envisaged life of the completed well
- Minimize the total costs per unit volume of fluid produced or injected, i.e.
- Minimize the costs of initial completion, maintaining production and remedial
This PetroKnowledge training course will feature:
- The main functions of completion
- Developing a high-level completion strategy for wells in a variety of situations
- Select tubing, packers, and completion flow control equipment
- Understand different sand control techniques and their application
What are the Goals?
By the end of this PetroKnowledge training course, participants will be able to:
- Evaluate for a given reservoir scenario the bottom hole completion options and make a recommendation based on well integrity and reservoir management requirements
- Identify, evaluate and recommend functional capability of completion strings for a variety of situations
- Describe the purpose and generic operating principles for major completion equipment components
- Identify limitation of well completion schematically designs and potential failure mechanisms/operational problems with equipment
- Assess well safety requirements and capabilities inherent in well design
- Describe the integration of the various stages of completing a well
- List and flow chart a general procedure to run a completion string
- Describe the requirements to pressure test and retain well control throughout the completion process
- Define the need for full and accurate reporting and records to be kept
