Production Operations 1


Level: Foundation


Duration: 22 hours virtual instructor-led, plus approximately 87 hours self-paced work.


The Production Operations Blended Program represents the core foundation series of PetroSkills’ production engineering curriculum. Participants will become familiar with both proven historical production practices as well as current technological advances to enhance oil and gas production. Applied skills guide the participant within a framework to make careful, prudent, technical oil and gas business decisions.

NODAL Analysis Workshop


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.

Scale Identification, Remediation & Prevention Workshop


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.
