Completion Engineering and Design

Training Calendar


Well Completions are the sole way of obtaining safe communication between the reservoir and surface production facilities. The role of the completion design engineer is to take a well that has been drilled and convert it into a safe and efficient production or injection string. Well completion design is a mixture of physics, chemistry, mathematics, engineering, geology, hydraulics, material science and practical hands-on well site experience.

This course cannot cover all of these topics in any depth. As a result this 5 day course will focus on the essential knowledge that is needed and the topics essential to any Well Completion Design Engineer who needs to convert a newly drilled well into a safe conduit to flow the well products into the surface facilities. Safety is critical in completions; people have been killed by poorly designed or poorly installed completions.

The completion must be designed so as to be safely installed and operated. Safe installation will need to reference hazards such as well control, heavy lifts, chemicals and simultaneous operations. The media used in this course is Presentations, manuals, videos, case histories and live examples.
