About this Training Course
This course is aimed at engineers and supervisors who already have prior understanding of well construction methods but who would benefit from a more detailed knowledge of completion design. The course will concentrate on the important aspects of completion design and what makes a safe and efficient well, using practical examples, presentations, videos, and animations.
The exercises are based on data taken from a single field and participants will be required to work through all the basic issues of a completion design. At the end of the course, participants will be grouped into teams who will then present their completion designs to a ‘management committee’. There is no ‘right’ answer to a completion design hence this makes for interesting discussions!
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to acquire:
- A good understanding of the completion design process and what makes a good completion design.
- The importance of the installation process (completion running) in the design process.
- An appreciation of new and developing completion techniques (intelligent wells).
This course will benefit engineers and field-based personnel such as completion supervisors and production engineers. It is also suitable for completion vendors, specialists such as chemists and subsurface personnel including geologists, reservoir engineers and petrophysicists.
Your expert course leader has 30 years of oil and gas industry experience. A first class degree in geophysics and a master degree in Petroleum Engineering was a prelude to 7 years with BP as a petroleum engineer. He left BP and following a short spell in Camco, jointly founded ICE Energy. After 6 years of completions and petroleum engineering consultancy and training, ICE Energy merged with TRACS International, where he continued with petroleum and completion engineering studies, leading integrated teams, and developing / delivering training courses for a variety of different clients in diverse world-wide locations. In the last 5 years, he is independent again – focusing on technical consulting and course delivery.
