N608 - Fundamentals of Well Completions and Workovers

Course Overview
This three-day course is an introduction for engineers, technologists, service personnel and others involved directly or indirectly with the planning and programming of completion and workover operations. This course provides an overview of key considerations in well completion and workover design, and a fundamental explanation of well/service equipment and operations. Technical explanations of common practices are given, along with troubleshooting hints. 

Participants will learn to:

•	Describe the fundamental concepts of well completions, including the completion design process.
•	Understand the differences between risk and uncertainty in petroleum engineering.
•	Recognize the factors that influence well performance and identify options to mitigate problems.
•	Identify the various types of stimulations and workovers.
•	Recognize the key components of well, workover and intervention equipment
•	Review stimulation and workover methods.
•	Discuss best practices for workovers and interventions.

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.

Mr. Idi Ishaya is an Associate Senior Production Engineering Specialist with RPS Energy. He has over 25 years of experience in the oil and gas industry cutting across production engineering, reservoir engineering and well services. He spent his first 9 years working as a Reservoir/Production Engineer with Chevron/Texaco and then 11 years with Shell before joining RPS Energy in 2012. As a Senior Specialist with RPS Energy, Idi provides expertise in the areas of well modelling and artificial lift design in oil and gas wells for both conventional and unconventional reservoirs. He also provides expertise in well completion and stimulation design including fracture stimulation in unconventional reservoirs. His regional experience covers Africa, Asia, North & South America, Europe and Australia/New Zealand. Idi is a member of Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) and a registered Professional Engineer in Alberta.

Mr. Michael Gallup is a Senior Production Engineer who is deeply involved in completion design and optimization of oil and gas wells which includes well test design and analysis, gas well dewatering, and well performance modeling involving wells located in various countries around the world. He specializes in the construction and application of Integrated Production Models (IPM). These models link material balance, well performance and surface networks to form an overall production system model which is used to optimize field performance, enable production forecasting and monitor reservoir and well performance. Michael also works on economic assessments and field development plans for both offshore and onshore fields located across the globe. Michael is a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) and a registered Professional Engineer with APEGA.

This course is suitable for individuals who are new to the industry because the course introduces students to equipment, processes and concepts but it doesn't provide an understanding of their intended uses or benefits.
November 25, 2016, Rotational Engineer, E.I.T., Calgary
Great course to get a solid foundation in understanding well completions and workovers. It helps to have some experience in order to better relate to the topics being covered.
June 6, 2016, Production Tech., Calgary
This course is really great - a wealth of information is covered, it is easy to understand but not over-simplified. Engineers and Techs alike will benefit from group conversations and real-life examples provided by the instructors.
June 10, 2016, Production Engineer, EIT, Calgary
A good course for those who are just getting into the industry or aren't familiar with rig operations. This course will provide you clarity on terminology and basic understanding of equipment.
May 27, 2015, Operations Engineer, Houston
Very good introductory class! Broad overview of a multitude of well completions and workover applications in the industry.
August 7, 2015, Sr. Reservoir /Production Engineering Technician, Houston
In the class I was in there were entry level technicians, as well as very experienced field personnel. I think it is suitable for every level and even other disciplines.
