Introduction to Production Operations

Introduction to Production Operations

At the outset, the basic oil production system is introduced, from reservoir to point of sale, providing a clear understanding of how the different elements of the production process interact with each other. Modelling a natural flowing oil well is then described, leading on to possible operations to enhance its performance and to choosing the appropriate artificial lift system. Surface and downhole technologies for monitoring production system behaviour are explained along with how their measurements are used to highlight underperforming wells and identify flow assurance issues. Finally, the course shows how production process diagnostics permit troubleshooting of problem wells and help design appropriate well intervention and work-over operations.

Suitability - Who should attend?

A petroleum engineer, process engineer, development geologist, oilfield production manager or field engineer with a limited background in production engineering
