This course covers the selection, design, diagnosis and troubleshooting of the major artificial lift methods (primarily ESPs and gas lift, although others will be considered) for both conventional and unconventional reservoirs. You will gain an appreciation of the key concepts involved in the analysis of artificial lift methods for challenging environments and a practical understanding of trend analysis and pattern recognition to solve operational problems. Well modelling software (Prosper) will be used by the instructor to illustrate design and troubleshooting techniques and applications with real field examples.
Course Structure: 12 modules of 1½ hours each, delivered over 4 days Each day will consist of 3 modules, split into units of 1½ hours, with multiple breaks.
Petroleum engineering or field staff involved in the selection, design, operation or troubleshooting of artificial lift systems (for standard or unconventional reservoir applications, particularly in challenging environments (deep, hot, gassy wells etc.).
