Who should attend
This course is intended for all Engineers and Geoscientists working in Exploration and Drilling and needing to contact with Production Engineering space.
About the course
Introduction to Production Technology covers fundamental concepts, following the hydrocarbons production cycle. The course starts with a revision of Reservoir Engineering fundamental notions, focusing then in the effect of well completion in production and finally concentrating in the most common operations and well interventions.
The course has practical exercises to ensure the concepts are properly understood and animations are presented to illustrate the operation of downhole tools.
Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:
- Become conversant on major topics within the production engineering
- Develop empathy for the challenges faced by the industry related to production engineering topics
- Develop the vocabulary and understanding of roles necessary to facilitate discussions with other professionals on production engineering topics
