Course description

Well Design and Engineering - WDE

Well Design and Engineering integrates all major well design technologies from pre-spud to TD. Participants are actively engaged in every aspect of the technical activities required to deliver a cost-effective well plan while also gaining valuable perspective on how the overall process should be managed in a dynamic team environment. The workshop content is often customized to address technologies and practices that may be specific to a project or operational situation. The course delivery is carefully balanced to integrate technical lectures and group discussion with roughly half of each day allotted for the teams to apply what they have learned on the project well design. The single most important goal of the workshop is to draw the linkages between the design topics and to leave the participants with an understanding that each decision has influence on those that follow. Intensity mounts as the course progresses and each design topic builds on those that came before. Design iterations are commonly required, especially as the course progresses and seemingly unrelated decisions push the teams into situations of uncomfortable operational risk. On the last day, each team presents their completed design before the class and an invited panel of industry professionals. A scientific calculator is required and a laptop computer is strongly recommended.

"Great overview and outline of everything to design a well." - Petroleum Engineer, United States
