About this Training Course
Optimal drainage of a reservoir, both physically and economically, is not as straightforward as it used to be in the good old days. Different well paths are available for different geological structures: conventional vertical, vertical, slanted and horizontal wells. Also corkscrew, fish hook wells or snake wells are on offering if the geology demands. Next to that various types of multilateral, multiple horizontal wells, complete the picture. Drillers can do anything, but will those wells flow? Often hydraulic fracturing is required, especially in low permeability reservoirs. The question is: How do we clean, stimulate or otherwise optimise the inflow?
In the drive towards more technically challenging completions, too often not enough attention is paid to the details of inflow performance optimisation. This can result in disappointingly poor or less than optimum production. Asset managers, advisors and engineers involved in the planning, execution, and evaluation of well completions need to have the background in what is possible using modern well stimulation and other production optimisation techniques and tools.
This course is designed for those involved in all aspects of well completion design but has emphasis on well stimulation. Obviously, to be able to make decisions, it is important to understand the characteristics of the “drainage volume” in relation to the well paths. Therefore, time will be allocated during the course in discussing inflow performance and consequently, the stimulation design. In other words, how does the geology affect the well stimulation design for vertical and horizontal wells in sandstones, shales and carbonates? The course will have its focus on hydraulic fracturing and fracturing design, quality control, conducting the treatment, monitoring pressures and other critical parameters, during and after the treatment.
