Well Integrity Technologies (PRE17)

  • 18-21 February 20194 daysVienna, AustriaCourse Fee: 2850 EUR + VAT


This course covers the main aspects of Well Integrity, starting with the construction of the well. Keeping the well operation within the safety envelope is critical for any oil & gas operator (well integrity).
Well integrity technologies are 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 and avoid release of hydrocarbons to environment.

Course Level: Skill
Instructor: Antonio Abreu

  • A drilling or completion engineer
  • Oil field technical staff

How we build your confidence

  • The course will be presented using properly designed slides, some with animation and several videos on relevant issues
  • Teaching methods include also calculations on related issues
  • Several examples of SAP (Sustainable Annulus Pressures) investigation will be presented

The benefits from attending

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

  • The fundamentals of well integrity monitoring and all implications on production efficiency
  • How to monitor and identify well integrity problems and technical procedures available for their mitigation
