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.

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.
November 24, 2016, Manager, Engineering South, Calgary
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.
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.
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.

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.

Very good introductory class! Broad overview of a multitude of well completions and workover applications in the industry.
