Downhole Remediation Practices for Mature Oil and Gas Wells Course

This 5-day course emphasizes the role of engineers and field operators in planning and executing Remedial Operations to maintain and increase production and thus the profitability and recoverable reserves of mature oil and gas wells. It also emphasizes the significance of the team concept as a factor in optimizing operations success. The course is highlighted with open discussions and problem solving shared by the instructor and participants.

By the end of this course, attendees will understand the industry’s advanced technologies in the field for diagnosing, planning and executing remedial jobs in their respective operations. They will have knowledge of selecting the appropriate method for the particular operation and perform the task in a safe and efficient manner.

To provide an in-depth knowledge of the theoretical and practical aspects of downhole remedial practices (DRP). At the end of the course delegates will learn about the many processes involved DRP.
