|Production Operations 1 - PO1|
|Hydraulic Fracturing Applications - HFU|
|Unconventional Resources Completion and Stimulation - URCS|
|Advanced Hydraulic Fracturing - AHF|
Discipline: Production and Completions Engineering
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): Thomas (Tom) Harting, Alfred Jennings
|This advanced course is designed for those who have a practical understanding of the applications of hydraulic fracturing and want to increase their expertise. The course will provide the details and discussion of fracturing concepts usually accepted or assumed in fracturing applications. The strengths and limitations of various approaches to fracturing treatment design will be covered. Attendees should leave the advanced course with a better understanding of the hydraulic fracturing process and how it relates to post-frac well performance.|
Production, operations, and completions engineers who are actively involved in hydraulic fracturing applications and desire a more in-depth understanding of hydraulic fracturing theory and applied concepts. It is designed for engineers that have some fracturing experience or those who have already attended the PetroSkills intermediate level Hydraulic Fracturing Applications course.
You Will Learn:
MR. TOM HARTING is a completion engineering consultant with over 34 years of experience in completion, production, and operations engineering, covering the lower onshore 48 states and Alaska. This includes the design and implementation of wireline, coil tubing, snubbing, and well service operations. Tom retired in 2009 from BP, where he was the Completion Wells Team Leader for BP's largest Tight Gas Development. His career with Amoco and BP has entailed developing high angle well designs and new completion technology for tight and unconventional gas reservoirs. He has also developed learning programs and operational guidelines for the execution of fracture stimulations. Tom has published SPE papers regarding multilateral completions, micro seismic, and the application of mini-falloff test for tight gas wells. He graduated with a BS in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Tulsa.
MR. ALFRED R. JENNINGS, JR. is a well stimulation consultant with Enhanced Well Stimulation, Inc., located in Tyler, Texas. He actively provides well stimulation consulting services throughout the world. Prior to establishing Enhanced Well Stimulation, Inc., he worked for Mobil R&D Corporation/Mobil E&P Services, Inc. where he was involved in various applications of well stimulation throughout Mobil's worldwide operations. Prior to Mobil, he worked 15 years for Halliburton Services in all aspects of hydraulic fracturing research and field applications. He is a registered Professional Engineer and has authored or co-authored 95 US patents pertaining to applications and techniques for well stimulation. He is widely published and has served on numerous SPE Committees. He received a BS Degree in Chemistry and an MS Degree in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Oklahoma.
