About this Micro Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

To enable the Characterizing of the Reservoir we need to be able to explain how reservoir characteristics determine well productivity, which in turn drives the well completion design and construction process. In this Micro VILT, we will describe the native state of rock and fluids in a hydrocarbon reservoir (before drilling) and explain the key factors that control inflow of reservoir fluids into the wellbore (geological setting, rock and fluid properties, flow path, pressure drawdown, completion efficiency, sand production, and flow assurance issues). This Micro VILT will explain Darcy's Law, the sensitivity of variables in the equation, and its relevance to reservoir productivity and formation damage. We will explain how formation damage impacts well productivity (skin, FE, PI) and explain the primary causes of formation damage. In as much as initial production is often overseen by the completions engineer, one must be aware of potential damage that can occur at this stage of operation. Most of the damage from early production will derive from drawdown and concentrative effects. A primary area of concern is a rapid flow of fluids (completion or formation fluids) into the near-wellbore region. If fine particles become entrained in fluids during high velocity flow, they could be transported to pore throats where blockages could occur. Even if completion fluid loss is kept to a minimum, natural water influx from the reservoir or from an adjacent water zone could accelerate fines migration.   Micro VILT Group Pricing: SGD$1,200 per person / USD$ 889 per person (Minimum 5 persons per group session) For more details on pricing for larger groups or customisation of course outline, call us at +65 6741 9927 or email [email protected]   Delivery of this Micro VILT: The Micro VILT will be delivered through Zoom, MS Teams or equivalent video conference platforms in combination with other online interactive training tools.   Micro VILT Duration: The Micro VILT will be delivered online in 1 session comprising 4 hours, with 2 breaks.
