Course Description
This two day course is a concept and capability building course designed for engineers, technologists, service personnel and others involved directly or indirectly with the design and operation of wells.  Well performance basics and evaluation, production and operation concerns, flow assurance, completion design and workovers, and optimization solutions are all discussed.  The course provides an understanding of the fundamental factors affecting when and how a well begins to see performance changes, along with the process and design requirements to understand and optimize well productivity for both oil and gas wells. 

This is a fundamental to intermediate level course with minimal background knowledge required. 

This course is also offered as a Live Virtual Training Course on June 21-22.  Live Virtual Classroom training lets you reap the benefits of real-time instructor led training wherever you have an internet connection.

Instructor

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.

Mr. Idi Ishaya is a Senior Production Engineering Specialist with RPS Energy. He has over 22 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. He 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.
