Flowing Well Performance and Production System AnalysisContains 2 Component(s), 0.8 credits offered
Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: use production data to define a well's IPR and flow potential under current operating conditions, predict changes in well potential resulting from declining reservoir pressures, evaluate the effects of various operating parameters on flowing well performance, design a single-well production system based on analysis of individual system components, select the appropriate tubing and flowline diameters for optimizing well performance, and predict future production rates based on changing operating conditions.
Artificial Lift Methods 2Contains 2 Component(s), 0.8 credits offered
Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: distinguish among the common methods of artificial lift and understand their advantages and limitations, select the most appropriate artificial lift method for a given set of well and economic conditions, perform basic surface and subsurface design calculations for gas lift and pump-assisted systems, and monitor artificial lift performance.
Workover Planning and OperationsContains 2 Component(s), 0.8 credits offered
Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to: evaluate well performance and identify workover or abandonment candidates, plan safe workovers using the tools and methods appropriate to individual wells, and apply procedures and standards in accordance with recognized safe practices and regulatory requirements.
Surface Production OperationsContains 2 Component(s), 0.8 credits offered
Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to: review surface flowing well conditions with the goal of optimizing production, describe the basic layout of an upstream producing facility and the functions of its major components, outline the general requirements for separating and treating produced oil as a basis for a detailed facility design, and plan and oversee routine field maintenance work, and maintain a safe operation through proper application of good work practices and the careful control of site activities.
