This course will cover the principles of well completion, operations, well stimulation and well monitoring. The theories and operational procedures will be covered. As part of introduction, overviews of a number of general topics such as geological and reservoir considerations in well completion, formation evaluation methods prior to completion (well logging, core analysis and drill stem testing) will be covered as prerequisites. A manual will be prepared for this course.
BENEFITS OF THE COURSE
At the end of this course, the participants will be able to do the following:
• Design successful and effective well completions including well cementing.
• Design successful sand control and well stimulation programs.
• Prepare detail well completion programs.
• Design, conduct and interpret well tests.
• Effectively take part and perform day-to-day well completion and well stimulation operations.
• Monitor and regulate the production of flowing wells for optimum performance.
