This course builds a firm foundation in the principles and practices of well completion. A comprehensive overview of past and actual well completion strategies will be shown and supported through schematics and animations.
Course Level: Foundation Duration: 5 days Instructor: Catalin Teodoriu
Designed for you, if you are...
A drilling, production or operations engineer, field supervisor, toolpusher, manager or technical support person
How we build your confidence
You will receive instruction on well construction and completion based on existing case studies. The basic applications and calculation for tubing selection or packer forces are also covered in the course. A strong focus will be on the well completion components such as packers, nipples, tubing and their connections, gravel pack, etc. As an independent course, we offer the most complete overview of tubing connection selection.
