Category: Fundamental       Length: 25 hours       CEUs: 2.5
Drilling covers the fundamental concepts associated with synthetic and naturally occurring pressures that can impact a well during the drilling phase for surface and subsea wells. This course also explains the most common well control methods, as well as the causes, detection, and theory of kicks. Specific procedures and crew assignments for critical operations such as well shut-in and killsheet preparations are discussed as it relates to individual rigs. Simulators are utilized to provide hands-on practice of critical rig equipment such as blowout preventers, and to demonstrate constant bottomhole pressure methods for maintaining well control.

Workover/Well Completion, Coiled Tubing covers the basic concepts of drilling workover, completion and coiled tubing, with emphasis on the specialized fluids used in workover and completion surface operations.  The basics of pressures, fluids, kicks, and procedures for coiled tubing operations are also covered. Essential surface and coiled tubing equipment are covered with special attention to downhole equipment utilized for well control during workover and completion operations.

Classroom Courses
Applied Reservoir Simulation
Jan 26 - 30
Houston, Texas, US

This course will introduce participants to the theory and practice of reservoir simulation. Participants will learn about the fundamentals of reservoir simulation, the development of simulation programs, and how to select the proper model for a simulation study.
Sequence Stratigraphy: Principles and Applications
Jan 26 - 30
Banff, Canada

This workshop presents the concepts and practical applications of sequence stratigraphy for petroleum exploration and production. All concepts are illustrated with field examples of seismic, well-log, core, and outcrop data. In-class exercises emphasize the recognition of sequence stratigraphic surfaces and systems tracts on well-log cross-sections, seismic lines, and outcrop profiles.
OLGA Well Dynamics
Jan 26 - 30
Aberdeen, Scotland, UK

This five-day course is intended to train the engineers who work with production and well performance to use OLGA to simulate the flow transients in the wells and production systems.
Studio for Petrel Users
Jan 27
La Defense, France

The Studio for Petrel Users course is designed for users who are already familiar with Petrel, but who need to learn about Studio from a user’s perspective. The purpose of this course is to describe basic concepts used in Studio (such as repositories and indexes) and learn how to work in a Studio environment.
Subsea systems
Jan 27 - 30
Aberdeen, Aberdeen, UK

As oil gets harder to source, subsea systems are becoming more important. Systems are also viewed as a more cost-effective way to retrieve oil. This course gives a comprehensive understanding of the design, installation and operation of subsea systems.
