Discipline: Production and Completions Engineering
Duration: 10 days
Instructor(s): Omar Barkat
|This course trains the participant to effectively develop and operate an upstream surface production system. The instructor uses his long training/coaching experience to support through this course the development of production operations professionals by enhancing their skills in understanding and solving problems within the integrated surface production system. Practical application of surface production practices is emphasized. Interactive discussions are generated along with examples and class exercises. Initially, participants will work as a team in short hands-on exercises that reinforce the lectures. Later on, participants arranged as a technical team will work on an Integrated Surface Production System (ISPS) team assignment. The result of this ISPS project will be presented during the last day of the program. Note that 75% of this course is hands-on team assignments. This course program will lay a solid foundation of the skills, knowledge, and self-awareness required to develop further into fully competent Production Operations Professionals.|
Production and technical professionals engaged in upstream operations and development, petroleum engineers, team leaders, production operators, technical assistants, senior technicians and field supervisors, production and development technical professionals, and newly hired field engineers. The course is also designed for all technical operating personnel who want to get a solid foundation in principles, challenges, and solutions for upstream surface production systems.
