Production Assurance - Troubleshooting and Guidelines in Oil & Gas Operations

Troubleshooting and Guidelines in Oil & Gas production operations - training course

Production Assurance - Troubleshooting and Guidelines in Oil & Gas Operations - A 5-Day Training Course

During the remaining lifetime of an oil or gas field, the application of economic methods in the treatment process is a prerequisite for ensuring compliance with specifications for the gas, oil, and water phase.

This course bridges the gap between process technology and production chemistry. It includes aspects common to operational issues such as organic precipitates (asphaltenes and waxes), water treatment and quality for re-injection, causes of non-effective treatment plants, modern ways of optimising treatment units, corrosion prevention and rules of bacteria in oil and gas production, scale formation, as well as system surveillance strategies.
Based on practical experience, possible causes of failure in production operation are explained and discussed in detail.

The course focuses on practical onsite experience. Case histories (video support) and practical examples will be subdivided into the following sections: System description, theoretical background, failure potentials, weak points and recommendation to mitigate possible negative production effects or to prevent further damage in the operational system.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This Production Assurance training course has been specifically designed for you, if you are: 

  • An engineer, project manager, production chemist, or a member of field operational staff currently or potentially involved in natural gas or oil production and storage operations
  • Seeking an overview of sustainable improvements in the gas/oil production process

Outcome / Qualification etc.

By the end of the course you will feel confident in your understanding of:

  • The efficiency of oil and gas treatment systems
  • Modern concepts against asphaltene and wax precipitation
  • Formation of Naphthenates in oil production
  • The impact of chemicals in oil and gas production and treatment
  • How to identify weaknesses in the production and treatment train
  • Definition and monitoring water quality for re-injection
  • The rules for Oxygen in production and material selection
  • How to control and improve the efficiency of treatment units
  • The impact of SRB’s in oil and gas production
  • The use of hydrates and hydrate inhibitors in gas production
  • The conditions for scale formation in treatment systems
  • Sustainable stimulation concepts to assure well capacity
  • The interpretation of chemical analyses from bailer samples
  • Corrosion in water treatment and injection systems
  • Application of flow analyses in treatment unit by tracers
