Gas Field Engineering - Reservoir and Production (PRE29)


    This course addresses the key subjects concerning the performance of gas production systems from reservoir to surface transport aspects: reservoir depletion, near-well inflow, wellbore flow, surface gathering systems and field performance. It teaches the fundamentals, relevant technologies as well as engineering methods and explores computational tools for analysis. Moreover, the course addresses the behaviour of each individual component as well as the integrated production system and discusses technical aspects of gas field planning.

    Course Level: Foundation / Skill
    Duration: 5 days
    Instructor: Milan Stanko
