Book now button

Course overview

In today’s low oil price climate, more and more operators decide to work on existing producing wells rather than drill expensive new wells. At this course, participants will come away with an understanding of the significant decision areas in well workovers and interventions. Particular emphasis is given to well diagnosis, water control, acidizing, squeeze cementing, wireline techniques, concentric tubing, perforating, well control, and completion fluids.

The course is designed for

  • Completion engineers
  • Production engineers
  • Reservoir engineers
  • Drilling engineers
  • Field supervisors
  • Production foremen
  • Engineering technicians
