ONLINE: Stimulation Technologies (PRE915)


    This course covers the main aspects of acid stimulation techniques. The course focuses both on theoretical concepts and practical onsite experience.
    Acidizing with coiled tubing will be also discussed in detail, due to its importance in acid placement and formation treatments.

    Course Level: Skill
    Duration: 5 days
    Instructor: Antonio Abreu
