ONLINE: Production Engineering (PRE912)

  • 6-8 November 20233 daysVirtual instructor-led course, OnlineCourse Fee: 1650 EUR + VAT


This broad-spectrum course covers fundamentals and best practices of modern petroleum production engineering by providing an understanding of integrated production systems, from reservoir to surface.
The course begins with a review of the basic principles of reservoir, wellbore and surface network modelling, to then present solutions to couple together the different elements of a production system. Emphasis will be placed on field performance enhancement and maintenance operations.
The course will also teach how to optimise a production system and maximise the recoverable reserves from a field given the physical constraints dictated by the production system itself and knowing the limitations of current modelling tools.

Course Structure: 9 modules of 1½ hours each, delivered over 3 days
Each day will consist of 3 modules, split into units of 1½ hours, followed by a 20 min break.

Course Level: Foundation / Skill
Instructor: Gioia Falcone
