The key objective of a well must be to deliver maximum profitability (without compromising safety and environmental standards) as measured by minimum life-cycle cost, minimum unit technical cost per barrel or maximum life-cycle production per unit cost. This course is designed to take participants through basic concepts and practices in well management necessary to achieve these objectives.  The well is the basic NPV generator of an E&P venture and this course provides a holistic, value-based approach to all factors responsible for production optimisation from the reservoir to the wellbore.


DAY 1:  Basic Principles of Reservoir Management

  • Fluid pressure regimes
  • Recovery factors
  • Reservoir drive mechanisms
  • Fluid flow regimes in the reservoir
  • Well testing and analysis
  • Natural water influx and management
  • Fluid contact movements and control
  • Reservoir off-take control


DAY 2:  Basic Principles of Well Planning

  • Production life-cycle and value concepts
  • Exploration, appraisal and development wells
  • Well inflow system
  • Outflow system
  • Well completion practices
  • Surface facilities
  • Well design procedure


DAY 3:  Production Enhancement practices

  • Formation damage
  • Well stimulation
  • Water Shut-off
  • Gas Shut-off
  • Sand Control
  • New technology
  • Production Economics & Management process.
