Well Engineering and Production > Micro Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) – Pumping

About this Micro Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

Pressure Pumping is an integral operation required both in establishing communication with the reservoir as well as ensuring various sand control methods are installed.

Following this Micro VILT, participants will understand the equipment and materials utilised for Hydraulic Fracturing as well as an overview of job execution, key HSE Issues as well as potential problems.

Acid Stimulation is used for various operations during well operations. An overview of Acid Fracturing, Hydraulic Fracture Assistance, Acid Matrix Treatments, Scale removal and Mud damage removal will be covered in this module as well as a focus on potential HSE Risks.

Gravel Packing is a method of sand control which requires the pumping of sand in a controlled method using various carrying fluids. In this module, we will look at the various types of Gravel Packing such as OHGP, CHGP & HRWP.

Your expert Micro VILT trainer has over 40 years of experience in the Oil & Gas industry. During that time, he has worked exclusively in well intervention and completions. After a number of years working for intervention service companies (completions, slickline & workovers), he joined Shell as a well service supervisor. He was responsible for the day-to-day supervision of all well intervention work on Shell’s Persian/Arabian Gulf platforms. This included completion running, coil tubing, e-line, slickline, hydraulic workovers, well testing and stimulation operations. An office-based role as a senior well engineer followed.

He was responsible for planning, programming and organising of all the well engineering and intervention work on a number of fields in the Middle East. He had a brief spell as a Site Representative for Santos in Australia before joining Petro-Canada as Completions Superintendent in Syria, then moved to Australia as Completions Operations Superintendent for Santos, before returning to Shell as Field Supervisor Completions and Well Interventions in Iraq where he carried out the first ever formal abandonment of a well in the Majnoon Field. While working on rotation, he regularly taught Completion Practices, Well Intervention, Well Integrity and Reporting & Planning courses all over the world. In 2014, he started to focus 100% on training and became the Technical Director for PetroEDGE.

Since commencing delivering training courses in 2008, he has taught over 300 courses in 31 cities in 16 countries to in excess of 3,500 participants.

To further optimise your learning experience from our courses, we also offer individualized “One to One” coaching support for 2 hours post training. We can help improve your competence in your chosen area of interest, based on your learning needs and available hours. This is a great opportunity to improve your capability and confidence in a particular area of expertise. It will be delivered over a secure video conference call by one of our senior trainers.

Learn what past participants have said about EnergyEdge training courses

The instructor was the key factor to how well this class was taught, how the lesson planning in his PowerPoint presentation was presented, and his exceptional knowledge on the pumping aspects, gravel pack installations, acidizing of zones, and the completions aspects of wells. It was a very good class and offered plenty of participation and had a fun competitive quiz at the end.

The courses provided by PetroEdge are informative and enriching. The trainer is also very well qualified with years of experience under his belts.

The presentation was effective and to the point. The half day format is very appropriate fitting into work schedules. I will definitely request to attend more of these shorter, more manageable courses.

This was an excellent course that clearly showed and explained the downhole fracturing, acidizing, and gravel packing of a well bore.
