COURSE TITLE: RE-ENTRY AND MULTILATERALS TECHNOLOGY
This course covers the principles of Re-entry and Multilaterals technology at its current level of understanding. As part of introduction, re-entry and multilaterals concept, commonly asked questions about re-entry and multilaterals technology, other applications, and limitations of re- entry and multilaterals technology are covered. Then, use of re-entry and multilaterals to drill and completion wells is covered.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Engineers, Geologists, Superintendents, Field Production Supervisors, Senior Operators, and Technical Managers and Their Support Personnel.
BENEFITS OF THE COURSE
At the end of this course, the participants will be able to do the following:
Plan and design successful and effective re-entry and multilaterals projects.
Evaluate job proposals for any type of re-entry and multilaterals application.
Effectively take part in any re-entry and multilaterals operations on location (technical support).
Do post-job analysis on any re-entry and multilaterals operations.
