Course Description

This course deals with the procedures involved in placing a well on production, including completion methods, well stimulation by acidizing or fracturing, wellheads, chokes, artificial lift methods, valves and surface lines. Methods of analyzing an oil well pressure buildup test are handled with example problems to determine the reservoir permeability and skin factor on the well. Problem areas such as hydrate formation, corrosion, emulsion problems and phase measurement are discussed. Surface facilities such as separators, treaters, dehydration systems and metering are introduced, with calculation methods for sizing two and three phase separators, and pressure drop estimation methods in surface lines and fittings.
