Why Choose this Training Course?
Material selection for oil and gas well equipment is a critical aspect of well construction and completion design. Selecting the incorrect material can lead to premature failures, resulting in significant costs associated with equipment replacement and productivity loss. This PetroKnowledge training course is a complete package of topics that cover all aspects in relation to oil and gas well construction and completion material selection; fundamental knowledge, well integrity management, standards, downhole corrosion, metallic & non-metallic material selection strategies and case studies. In addition, the delegates get familiar with two software for evaluation and determination of corrosion in steels (PREDICT®) and CRA material selection for corrosive oil and gas applications (SOCRATES®).
This Material Selection in Oil and Gas Upstream training course will highlight:
Well construction & completion components, well integrity management system and basic metallurgy
Downhole Corrosion Mechanisms and failure case studies
Casing and Tubing Standards, Grades & Manufacturing
Strategies for metallic and non-metallic material selection
Material Selection Case Studies and Software Simulation
