Fundamentals of HPHT (High Pressure High Temperature) Well Completion Design
London, United Kingdom

This 3-day course is designed for engineers and technologists regularly involved in normal completion designs and practices who wish to learn about the uniqueness of HPHT Completion sesign, as well as operations superintendents, managers, or specialists who require an appreciation for the complex nature of HPHT completions. The course will provide an engineering design methodology for planning of High Pressure and High Temperature wells, which are becoming much more prevalent in the industry. These trends require significantly more detailed engineering and preparation, ensuring operations and equipment are safely implemented. The importance of adequate stress and temperature profile analyses, tubular and connection selection criteria, proper completion equipment selection, completion fluid selection, operational considerations, and detailed timely planning will be emphasized. The utilization of a commercial thermal and stress analysis software will be demonstrated and classroom exercises will re-enforce the principles being taught. A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.

Event Details :  October 16 to October 18, 2006
A Venezuela-Canada Business Forum

Margarita Island, Venezuela
Organized by the Government of Venezuela in collaboration with Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada. This forum will allow Canadian firms to get a good picture of the country's business opportunities and meet potential buyers, suppliers and service providers. The Macro-Rueda will be an ideal platform for Canadian exporters looking to establish or strengthen their presence in this growing market, which is Canada’s second largest export destination in Central and South America. The program will allow companies to schedule one-on-one meetings with potential partners, exchange export and import orders, network, exhibit their products and services, and explore joint ventures, technology transfer, and investment opportunities. While the oil and gas industry figures prominently, Venezuela has taken steps to develop other sectors such as agriculture, mining, electric power, infrastructure, telecommunications, health care, environmental services, and consulting engineering. If you are an export-ready company and have a business interest in the Venezuelan market, please consult the event website, contact the Canadian Embassy in Venezuela, or contact the Business Development Officer responsible for your province/territory.

Well Completions Best Practices Using The Completion Efficiency Process

Calgary, Canada
This three-day course is designed for reservoir engineers, geologists, petrophysicists, completion engineers, and asset managers involved with completion designs, or with reviewing completion recommendations from service companies. The course will help participants improve completion results and maximize asset value by optimizing stimulation treatments. The “Completion Efficiency” process (SPE 90483) involves the development of a calibrated net pay model to determine if poor production performance is the result of permeability-thickness, reservoir pressure, completion practices, or a combination of these factors. An integrative process stresses using wireline logs, core data, and production test data in order to develop local models and ultimately predict production performance using only a basic log suite and completion information. Diagnostic techniques such as post completion radioactive tracers and production logs are discussed to supplement performance analysis. Subsequent to model development and implementation, a comprehensive review of “best practices” from analog field studies is provided to aid in the optimization of future or existing well completions. Participants will receive a fully functional log analysis calculation spreadsheet that includes calculation of all inputs required to develop calibrated permeability and stress profiles. Comprehensive case studies are provided, and participants are encouraged to provide local examples for discussion of model implementation and “best practices” for their areas of activity. A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.

Course Outline :
Review of Basic Log Analysis Techniques
Log Quality Control and Calibration Steps
Log Data Normalization
Completion Efficiency Model Data Requirements
Net Pay Determination (Stiles-George Technique)
Permeability, Rock Properties and Pressure Model Calibration
Integration of Rock Properties, Permeability, and Pressure Models
