Well Engineering and Production > Production Engineering & Operations - Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

About this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

This 5-half day virtual instructor led training (VILT) course aims to provide a comprehensive understanding on the fundamentals of production engineering and production operations. It analyses the production components from reservoir to surface, the well, the completion equipment and the surface production facilities, as parts of integrated production systems, targeting optimal production.

The course reviews historical production practices and highlights current technological advances in the area of well completion and well production management. Topics include well completion and well configurations and well performance, well testing, artificial lift, 2-phase and 3-phase separation, emulsion and water treatment, and storage and transportation (pipeline). Participants will also learn maintenance, safety and environmental issues related to production.

After the completion of this VILT course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand basic well completion
  • Recognize the fundamentals of artificial lift design and operations
  • Recall and discuss hydrocarbon exploitation considerations for well productivity and completion design
  • Examine the layout of production equipment
  • Describe the main parameters that influences Well Performance and Productivity
  • Define the factors that influence the selection and design of the completion string and components
  • Investigate surface production problems (separators, treaters, and pipeline design and selection)
  • Explore fundamentals of fluid flow in the tubing
  • Distinguish fluid flow measurement techniques and procedures

This VILT course is intended for those seek a comprehensive understanding of Production Engineering and Operations and wish to enhance their current job effectiveness in the field. Geologist, Petroleum Engineers and Operations, Drilling, Well Services Engineers, Reservoir Engineers and other technical staff who are looking start or collaborate with other engineers in production or operations will find this course useful in their assignments.
