This is an asset team blended course that introduces a broad array of important daily production technology practices. 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 multi-discipline 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 completions equipment and tools are viewed and discussed. Participants work several exercises including 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. Case studies illustrate the multi-discipline interaction required in applying various production technologies to optimize project development and operations.
Exploration and production technical professionals, asset team members, team leaders, line managers, IT department staff who work with data and support production applications, data technicians, executive management, and all support staff who require a more extensive knowledge of production tehnology and engineering.

PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY APPLICATIONS
MR. PAUL BARRY is a petroleum engineering consultant specializing in production operations and oilfield development and management. Mr. Barry has over 44 years of international upstream oil and gas production and reservoir engineering and management experience resident in various US locations, South America, SE Asia, the Middle East, and the North Sea. He has been a consultant and PetroSkills instructor since 2002. With PetroSkills, he was based in Perth, Australia from 2007-2008 and in Dubai, UAE, from 2003-2006, developing PetroSkills regional business in both locations. Industry experience has been as a consultant for shale oil and gas exploitation planning and multi stage, fractured horizontal well completion practices. Previous experience has been as a field production engineering manager of an onshore oilfield re-development/brownfield project for PDVSA and partners in Venezuela which required a combination of gas lift, submersible pump, and rod pump artificial lift completion technology, and frac pack sand control well completions. Previous Indonesia experience was in the design and completion of dual string, multiple selective, underbalanced, TCP high pressure gas wells, artificial lift oil well completions, and exploration well testing and evaluation for Pertamina and ARCO partners for Bontang LNG gas supply operations. As district reservoir engineer for Pertamina and Arco partners in Indonesia, Mr. Barry was responsible for the plan of development and reserves determination and certification for a 1.3 TCF offshore Bali gas field. He has also worked as a field engineer in Saudi Arabia for Aramco, responsible for a 1.2 MMBWD reservoir pressure support injection well system and injection water quality, producing well gravel pack completions, corrosion control systems, and, as Mobil Oil facilities engineer in the Aramco Gas Projects department. He has represented company technical and commercial interests in both UK and Norwegian North Sea sector oil and gas producing fields. Mr. Barry has served as an officer in the Jakarta and Dubai SPE sections. He holds a BSCE from the University of Notre Dame and an MSCE from Marquette University, and is a registered Professional Engineer in Colorado, USA.
MR. MANICKAVASAKAN (MANICKAM) S. NADAR is a consultant Principal Petroleum engineer with 27 years of experience in the upstream oil and gas industry and 6 years in petrochemical process operations. With a strong background in Production Technology, Well Operations, Well Completions & Workovers, Artificial Lift, Asset Modeling and Optimization, he has specialized in artificial lift technologies, well and system designs, analysis, trouble-shooting, reliability improvement and production enhancement. He has made significant contribution in the artificial lift selection, design, operation, surveillance and optimization of large volume gas lifted and ESP wells for many operators. Mr. Nadar has worked for major international operating companies and handled various responsibilities in production engineering operations and artificial lift systems, onshore and offshore. In the service sector, he has delivered many challenging well and network modeling and optimization projects that helped clients achieve substantial increase in production, operation efficiency and cost savings. Recently he has helped companies to implement real-time surveillance and optimization systems that allows operators use collaborative work environments for achieving their KPIs. A university topper and gold medalist, Mr. Nadar holds a BSc degree in Chemistry from Madurai University, India and a degree in Chemical Engineering from Institution of Engineers (India). With several SPE papers and text book publications to his credit, he has conducted many workshops, training seminars and short courses for SPE and other organizations.
