Who should attend
This course is intended for reservoir, production and surface facilities engineers responsible for managing the reservoir, providing surface facilities and maximizing the production performance of oil and gas properties. Engineers and other personnel involved in providing tools and chemicals for diagnosing / reducing water production and treating produced water.
About the course
This course presents different processes in water treatment in natural and constructed system sludge treatment technologies In addition to produced water large quantities of seawater and water from other sources is treated and injected. The economic success of oil and gas development projects depends very much on our ability to successfully manage water.
Water management is defined as our ability to diagnose the cause of excess water production, design and implement remedial treatments to prevent water production, and in most instances deal with the large volumes of produced water. This course discusses methods, equipment and tools used for testing, diagnosing, and minimizing water production from oil and gas wells. Reservoir engineering and surface facility aspects of water handling, treatment and re-injection are extensively discussed.
Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:
- Learn and understand the techniques for present and future water purification and treatment of operation and management of treatment plants
- Calculate how to construct and manage different processes involved in sustainable water treatment
- Apply innovative technologies to get better function and fulfill the requirement of the society
- Propose sludge treatment technologies
- Educate reservoir, production and surface facilities engineers in key aspects of water production, treatment and re-injection in oil and gas fields
