Well Completion and Well Testing


Course Description

  • This short course places emphasis on the role of the Well, as part of the Integrated Production System. Well Completion design concepts and the technical selection criteria for the main completion components are reviewed in detail. Group exercises on Completion and Performance are also part of the learning process. The course also highlights the Operating Company’s viewpoint in the area of Well Completion and Well Production Management.

Course Objectives

  • By the end of the course, participants should be able to: State how Well Completion fits into the E&P Activity; Recall and discuss hydrocarbon exploitation considerations for well productivity and completion design; Describe the main parameters that influences Well Performance and Productivity; Describe the factors that influence the selection and design of the completion string and components; Carry out a completion design on the Onshore and explain how it will be run in the well, Type of well test, planning the test, Surface Equipment and downhole tools.

Who Should Attend?

  • Geo-scientists, Engineers and Managers (in Drilling, Well Intervention/Services, Reservoir Engineering, Production Operations, Marketing/Sales etc.), whose jobs require them to interface with Completion Engineers, Production Technologists, Well Production Operations Engineers, and Well Maintenance/Servicing Engineers who wish to enhance their current job effectiveness, through more knowledge on Well Completion and Performance, than that attained from their own “core” discipline training and exposure.
