This course builds a firm foundation of the principles and practices of well completion under the aspect of well integrity. A comprehensive overview of past and actual well integrity strategies will be shown and supported through schematics and animations. Calculations will be used to help you understand the relationship between well integrity and good engineering practice. The course will start with a review of well construction and well completion being followed by a thorough immersion in well integrity causes and ways to remedy them.
Course Structure: 10 modules of 2 hours each, delivered over 5 days Each day will consist of 2 modules which will be no more than 2 hours in length with multiple breaks.
A drilling, production or operations engineer, field supervisor or manager
How we build your confidence
The course is constructed as a live instructor-led training with case studies, videos, and exercises presented during class.
You will receive instructions how well construction and completion will contribute to achieve maximum well integrity based on existing case studies. Looking at the well design as a whole, basic applications and calculation for cement hardware selection as well as casing design and connection forces are covered in the course.
A strong focus will be on how to achieve well integrity and how the best practice can contribute to select the best components such as packers, nipples, tubing and their connections, gravel pack, etc.
As an independent course, it offers the most complete overview of connection make-up tools selection.
