Production engineering

 

 

  • Production Operations  

 

              Overview

 

The participant will become familiar with past proven, and, newer technologies, procedures, and techniques to improve and increase oil, gas, and condensate production. The course structure applies a proven methodology, least cost, integrated methods approach that allows engineers and students to make careful and prudent business decisions. New content to address the basics of unconventional resources, including shale gas and oil, and heavy oil and bitumen has been added. Are you ready to attend a PetroSkills reservoir engineering or production volume reporting (PVR) course training class, school or short course? This is the best time to register.

  • Formation damage and ACIDIZING APPLICATIONS IN SANDSTONES AND CARBONATES

 

Overview

Although acidizing is the oldest method of well stimulation, it is often applied with mixed results. It remains, however, a valuable tool for improving well productivity. The key to acidizing success is in the understanding of how it works, the optimum conditions for its application, and proper evaluation of well response after the acidizing treatment. The instructor will present many of the practical aspects of acidizing applications and help provide a better understanding of acidizing as a tool for enhancing well performance.

 

 Designed for

 

Students, engineers and other personnel involved with the daily operation and management of producing oil and gas wells; production engineers and reservoir engineers involved with well stimulation applications would also benefit from attending this course.
