Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course? 

The objective of this PetroKnowledge training course is to manage natural flowing well through production technology, introducing reservoir concepts and high-lighting formation damage mechanisms and nodal analysis. Lower completions are detailed in screen and screen-less completions and the principles ruling their selection, as well as types of perforations are described presenting their applications. Upper completions are discussed, and accessories are presented.

In addition, this Petroknowledge training course will familiarize the delegates with production system and its component by; detailed description of components and design features analysis. Ways to improve and optimize wells’ production also be presented and discussed.
