Why Choose this Training Course? 

The Production Technologist’s mission is to design, construct, operate and maintain any well, so that it is safe for use from spud to abandonment, delivering maximum value to the business. Production Technology is the discipline that integrates subsurface and surface in the oil and gas upstream industry. Traditionally, Production Technologists are known as “Well Doctors”, as their focus area is the well. However, their remit extends from the reservoir, through the well into the production system and export. Over the years, the Production Technologist has taken centre stage in the development of Well, Reservoir and Facility Management and Production Optimisation.

This PetroKnowledge training course lays the foundation for Production Technology, covering the essential components of the discipline, with theory, exercises and group work. In addition, we will cover the application of Production Technology on Well Performance, Completion Design, Perforating, Artificial Lift, Stimulation, Sand Management, Well, Reservoir and Facility Management and Production Optimisation. The whole training course is highly interactive with opportunities for participants to share their experience and expertise. At the end of the training course, there is an opportunity to brainstorm and troubleshoot real issues, that participants have, which they can take back and apply their learnings to their wells and fields.

This PetroKnowledge training course will highlight:

  • The role of the Production Technology
  • Essential components of the Production Technology discipline
  • The application of Production Technology in the oil and gas business
  • Fundamentals of Well Completion Design
  • How to maximise oil and gas production and recovery
