This short course will provide you with a knowledge and understanding of the equipment and procedures employed in the exploration and production of offshore oil and gas.
On successful completion of this short course you will:
- Have a basic understanding of (petroleum) reservoir engineering
- Have a knowledge of the equipment needed and procedures practiced for the extraction of natural hydrocarbons (oil and gas) from offshore locations
- Understand the problems encountered and potential dangers involved during the extraction of oil/gas
- Understand how procedures/equipment have developed in order to minimise the potential dangers
- Understand the requirements in terms of equipment for the production of oil and gas in offshore and subsea locations
- Have an overview of the factors to be considered in the development of an offshore/subsea oil/gas field.
- Reservoir engineering: introduction, reservoir rocks - properties, reservoir fluids, rock-fluid interaction, phase behaviour of reservoir fluids, classification of reservoir fluids
- Drilling: history, drilling systems, tubing programs, connectors, primary guidance, motion compensation, wellhead housings, running tools, templates and tiebacks, completion overview
- Subsea production: fundamental requirements, hardware - trees, manifolds, flowlines, analysis of building blocks, subsea developments - examples, case studies, new technologies.
