Production Engineering and Optimization

The course provides the design an optimum well completion, prediction of Oil and Gas production Rate, type of Artificial lift requirement, design of compression, bottlenecks identification, under-performing wells, prediction of liquid loading and design velocity string. The course will stress the importance of optimizing the flow efficiency and optimize production at low cost. Also provides the discussion on the important technologies in water and sand control, multi-phase pump, stimulation, horizontal & multi-lateral well completion. The course covers both fundamentals and hand-on computer workshop solving class problems and actual well cases using available NODAL analysis software.
