This course is conceived as a fast tour through well completion and workover required to keep your well safe and economical. The course offers a comprehensive overview of past and actual downhole tools such as packers, valves and intelligent completion equipment. The second part of the course focuses on the workover equipment and proper planning of such activities.
A professional with a background in petroleum engineering, especially a driller, production, completion or petroleum engineer, and focussed on well completion design and workover
Basic knowledge of well drilling and drilling equipment are the main requirements.
How we build your confidence
Participants are going to learn about the design options to meet deliverability, safety and integrity requirements in completions and workover operations. The main components of a well are described and analysed by their function and design criteria. The workover systems and procedures are presented and discussed. Case studies will be provided and a class project will help the participants understand the hands-on aspects of completions and workovers. Finally a short overview of selected case studies is given.
