Course Description:

The five days course provides detailed discussions and hands-on training for building integrated production and well operations performance models using commercial software applications. The training course will provide fundamental and advanced knowledge of integrated production and well operations modeling components, beginning with the static reservoir pressure, inflow performance, flow across the completion, up the tubing string, surface choke, horizontal flow lines, and into the separator. Novel workflows for thoroughly evaluating, analyzing and optimizing performance of oil and gas field/well production system components to achieve an objective rate at the different states of the well/field life (early-, mid- and later-life) will also be presented. Framework to generate production optimization opportunities at different levels, from reservoir and near wellbore remediation to lift performance improvement via the additional and optimization of artificial lift will be illustrated as well. Applications and case studies of multiple petroleum production technologies will be presented and discussed.
