Well Intervention Management for Brown Field Rejuvination
Course Summary: Brown fields are characterized by declining oil production, high water cut, sand production, flow assurance challenges, well integrity issues and obsolete equipment. Thus, to reverse the declining production trend commonly experienced in brown fields, a holistic approach underpinned by a structured collaborative workflow in conjunction with the application of appropriate technology, is central to brown field rejuvenation initiative. The rejuvenation of such fields is achieved by the identification of low-performing wells, reservoirs and bottlenecked surface facilities, definition of a clear work scope of identified opportunities and progressing them through the well intervention funnel to execution phase. That said, if well interventions are not planned and performed correctly, the impact is usually negative on production, recovered reserves, hence, cashflow.
This course is designed to equip participants with the required knowledge to effectively plan and manage well intervention in order to achieve maximum success rate. Central to an effective intervention planning and execution is a collaborative framework involving the Asset team, Well Services, Service Contractors, Managers, Production Operations and the Industry’s Regulators. Participants will learn about their respective roles and responsibilities as part of an efficient interface framework.
The course shall emphasise on brown field characteristics, intervention maturation process, interface management, contractors management, conversion of proposals into executable programmes, types of interventions, associated equipment, safety aspects of intervention, well handover procedure, supervision and after action reviews with the capturing of ideas in the well intervention management system, to embed companywide knowhow. With these, participants will also acquire knowledge on how to develop an effective and efficient well intervention management model through the field lease cycle.
Specific case studies will be evaluated with the aid of innovative and industry standard software to demonstrate and reinforce learning on how to effectively plan and manage well interventions.
Who Should Attend: This course is designed specifically for Production Technologist, Intervention Engineers, Well Services Planners, Completion Engineers and Managers, Field maintenance Supervisors and Operators, Service companies and Safety professionals involved in the planning and execution of well interventions.
