Well Integrity Management for the Well Life Cycle (DRI18)

    Description

    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 Level: Skill / Advanced
    Instructor: Catalin Teodoriu or Holger Kinzel

    Designed for you, if you are...

    • A drilling, production or operations engineer, field supervisor or manager

    How we build your confidence

    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.

    The benefits from attending

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

    • Well integrity concepts
    • The determination of the minimum number of downhole tools for best well integrity
    • Well integrity definitions and complexity
    • Critical well integrity issues
    • Interpretation of well barriers
    • Designing your string for improved well integrity
    • Tubing loads and their constraints
    • Well completion components and their failures
