Who should attend

This course is intended for Petroleum Engineers, Reservoir Engineers, Production Engineers, Well Service Engineers, Operators, Senior Operators, Junior Engineers, Drilling Engineers, Drilling Supervisors, Geologists, Technologists, Foremen, Technicians, Field supervisors and operations personnel and Anyone involved in the planning, execution and evaluation of well stimulation treatments in conventional as well as unconventional plays, including completion, production, workover, reservoir and drilling personnel.

About the course

Reservoir stimulation deals with well productivity. As a result, a successful stimulation first requires accurate identification of parameters controlling well productivity and the determination of whether or not stimulation can improve production. This is therefore the very first step of the stimulation job design. Well stimulation treatments, which are designed to restore or enhance well productivity, are of two basic types. Matrix treatments are performed at pressures that are below the formation fracture pressure; they are primarily designed to remove near-wellbore damage. Fracture treatments, on the other hand, are performed at pressures above the formation fracture pressure; they are designed to open up highly conductive flow paths between the reservoir and the wellbore, thereby bypassing near-wellbore damage and changing the flow patterns around the well.

This course provides a basic understanding of the types of formations and basic reservoir properties with which we deal as well as developing the basic formation damage, acidifying, and hydraulic fracturing concepts. The course includes acidifying and fracturing quality control, conducting the treatment, monitoring pressures, and other critical parameters, during and after the treatment. This course is designed to cover all aspects of well stimulation. The course includes the basic concepts of well stimulation and its importance in increasing productivity of wells beside it discusses acidizing and fracturing quality control, conducting the treatment, monitoring pressures, and other critical parameters, during and after the treatment.
