The Completions and Workovers Blended Program represents one of the most popular foundation series courses within PetroSkills’ production engineering curriculum. Participants will become familiar with many aspects of modern completion design as well as a variety of workover technologies. This course is intended to be broad based, and includes both conventional and unconventional wells. The focus of this program is on design and selection.
Duration: 16 hours virtual instructor-led, plus approximately 22 hours self-paced work
Well Inflow/ Outflow NODAL™ Analysis is an integral part of a production or completion engineer’s work scope, and is often applied throughout a well’s life to maximize value - from the beginning of the completion design process through underperforming well diagnostics. This workshop provides a comprehensive overview of this analysis technique, emphasizing real world application through multiple problems from different perspectives.
DURATION: 12 hours instructor-led (virtual), plus approximately 59 hours self-paced work
Production Technology for Other Disciplines is an asset team blended course as it introduces a broad array of important daily Production Technology practices to team members. Terminologies, expressions, axioms, and basic calculations regularly utilized by Production Techs are covered throughout the course.
Duration: 10 hours virtual instructor-led, plus approximately 16 hours self-paced work
Scale Identification, Remediation and Prevention is an essential part of a production or workover engineer’s scope of work. This workshop provides a comprehensive overview of dilemmas in operating producing and injection wells relating to the presence of a variety of oilfield scale types ‒ primarily reduction in pipe carry capacity and localization of corrosion attack ‒ deposition mechanisms, identification methods, various removal techniques and methodologies for its prevention. Upon completion, participants will be aware of the scale problem, understand ways to remediate it and prevent it subsequent deposition. Specific mathematical scale prediction methods are presented and numerous preventive methods, both chemical and unique approaches, are covered.
