Well Integrity Engineering (PRE17)

  • 29 Oct-2 Nov 20175 daysAbu Dhabi, UAECourse Fee: 4200 USD


This course covers the main aspects of Well Integrity, starting with the construction of the well (cementing technologies).
Keeping the well operation within the safety envelope is critical for any oil & gas operator (well integrity technologies).
Well integrity technologies, focusing on monitoring problematic wells, diagnosing the causes of those problems, and implementing techniques to mitigate and/or repair those problems in order to keep the wells operating safely.

Course Level: Intermediate
Instructor: Antonio Abreu

Designed for you, if you are...

  • A petroleum or production engineer, a development geologist, reservoir modeller or field engineer who wants to develop your knowledge on these areas
  • A production manager, field manager, drilling manager, etc.

How we build your confidence

You will be focusing on major well integrity problems, how to identify them and find mitigation strategies.
The course focuses on both theoretical concepts and on practical onsite experience.
By the end of this course you will feel confident of understanding the importance of the issues presented and discussed, in order to optimise the performance of the most important assets of your company, besides their people: the producing wells.
Well integrity is about diagnosing well problems, aiming at avoiding those wells to be added to the (expensive) list of inactive wells by keeping them producing within the safety envelope.
