Optimized Well Completion and Workover

Formation pressure prediction and evaluation is a safety critical task. This course provides you with the fundamental skills required for pre-well prediction and subsequent real-time evaluation of subsurface pressures (overburden, fracture and pore pressures) using a variety of direct and indirect methods. It will also introduce you to the basics of wellbore stability analysis and describe how recognition of the pore pressure generation method is so important for prediction and evaluation.

This is a comprehensive course using the basic models of geology, rock-mechanics and hydrodynamics to predict and appraise subsurface geopressure and, consequently, evaluate your prospect risk pre-and post-drilling.

Participants will learn how to calculate and run their own pore pressure (PP) prediction and analyses, based on a geo-scientific foundation, rather than software design.The course applies a new method of calculating pore pressure and also discusses some of the pitfalls related to specific widely used applications.

The course proceeds from the known (measured pp) to the unknown (predicted pp). It explains the development of the subsurface geopressure compartments with depth and their impact on hydrocarbon entrapments, drilling prognoses and risk assessment.
