Well Intervention & Workover (DRI25)


    This course will be a general introduction to processes and equipment used in well intervention and workover in today’s oil and gas fields. Participants will explore the mechanics of each of the processes and how to identify which process will work best for increasing production. Participants will be introduced to the basic processes involved in design, implementing and troubleshooting of well intervention and workover systems. The course will also emphasize decision tree analysis for identification of well candidates for each of the two processes.

    Course Level: Foundation
    Instructor: Frank Seidel

    Designed for you, if you are...

    • An engineer, field technician or someone who designs or works with oil and gas wells that fall off line and need repair

    How we build your confidence

    Seminar style teaching is accompanied by case histories of various well intervention and workover processes to optimise well production. Participants will learn how to select, design and troubleshoot specific examples, as well as understand benefits and limitations of technologies using industry best practices.

    The benefits from attending

    By the end of the course you will feel confident in your understanding of:

    • The principle processes of how different systems work
    • Selecting the appropriate well intervention or workover process
    • Basic design parameters for developing a well intervention or workover procedure
    • The related processes and equipment needed for a successful job
    • How to compare well intervention and workover processes to determine which one is most economically feasible
    • Working through real examples and applying learned concepts to develop a successful well intervention or workover process
    • Operator best practices for both well intervention and workover processes


    • Different processes in well intervention operations
      - Wireline operations
      - Coil tubing operations
    • Different processes in workover operations
    • Wellbore considerations
    • Writing example well intervention and workover procedures
    • Cost estimating
