About the course

Participants in this course will learn how to manage well design, construction, surveillance, and the documentation of well integrity for a “life-of-well” philosophy. An emphasis will be placed on how industry standards and guidelines relate to barrier construction, monitoring, and management. The proper understanding of these concepts will equip each participant with the tools to safely and reliably construct and verify the integrity of a well.

Specific concepts that will be covered during this course will include barrier concepts such as geology, casing, cementing, and various equipment used in completion. Participants will also learn about corrosion and erosion effects on barriers, issues with loads, pressure, and temperature on barrier integrity, along with barrier inspection and verification.

This course will use case studies and projects throughout the week, along with a final presentation by small groups where participants will demonstrate the integrity concepts, methods, importance, and problems topics that were covered during the course.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Learn how to manage well design, construction, surveillance, and the documentation of well integrity for a “life-of-well” philosophy
  • Learn about corrosion and erosion effects on barriers, issues with loads, pressure, and temperature on barrier integrity, along with barrier inspection and verification
  • Learn about hazard analysis, emergency response, management of change, and contractor selection
  • Learn about the well barrier element selection and how to choose a reliable WBE
  • Learn the important concern with causes and management of annular pressure buildup, abandonment, and suspension
  • Learn why well barrier verification is at the center of ensuring well integrity for the life of the well
  • Learn about the different ways in which a well may become loaded and what challenges that would be placed on the barriers
  • Learn about specific well barrier elements such as geology, fluid columns, tubulars, cement, completion string and downhole equipment, and wellheads
  • Learn about the importance and difficulty of achieving well integrity throughout the life of a well
