Target Audience

Petroleum engineers, production operations staff, reservoir engineers, facilities staff, drilling and completion engineers, geologists, field supervisors and managers, field technicians, service company engineers and managers, and especially engineers starting a work assignment in production engineering and operations or other engineers seeking a well-rounded foundation in production engineering.

You Will Learn

For conventional plays in onshore situations:

  • The purpose and basic operational aspects of wellhead, flow control equipment, and the major components used in a basic well completion in conventional plays
  • The impact that drilling practices may have on reservoir productivity
  • Specify the production target of a well and describe the type of completion or workover design components required to achieve the target
  • Describe the basic properties and function of tubing
  • Describe which fluid systems are the most important for implementing successful completions and workovers in wells in conventional plays
  • Describe the most common equipment components used in conventional wells and what they are used for
  • Describe the most relevant steps for implementing completion procedures in wells in conventional resources plays and the proper interaction with all parties involved required
  • Describe the most relevant aspects of HSE in completion operations
  • Describe how a well flows, the impact of well control on fluid flow, and the most common control and monitoring devices
  • Describe the basic requirements to abandon conventional wells
  • Specify the production target of a horizontal well, and describe how this differs from a typical vertical well
