Production Technology for Other Disciplines - PTO


About the Course

PTO is an asset team 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. Emphasis is upon proven technology required to effectively develop and operate an asset in a multidiscipline development environment.

Practical application of technology is emphasized. Both theory and actual field examples and well completion programs are studied along with class problems, exercises, and videos. Nodal analysis examples to assess well performance are set up. Well completion equipment and tools are viewed and discussed. Participants work several exercises such as basic artificial lift designs, acidizing programs, gravel pack designs, and fracturing programs. Shale gas and oil development challenges are thoroughly explained. Horizontal and multilateral technology is presented.

This course is also available virtually as a blend of instructor-led training and eLearning

"I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects. It's excellent when you attend a course and you are immediately considering how it applies to my job." - Reservoir Engineer, United Kingdom

"Excellent teaching and very comprehensive course material." - Reservoir Engineer, Malaysia

Target Audience
