HORIZONTAL AND MULTILATERAL WELLS
About the course:
Successful multilateral and horizontal wells require new considerations, interdisciplinary planning, and special techniques.
This intense course focuses on the critical need for a proper understanding of all aspects of horizontal and multilateral design and completion. It also addresses basic stimulation design and analysis concepts. It is designed for those planning or working with horizontal and multilateral wells and interested in effective use of the latest technology.
Basic understanding of important reservoir characteristics, hole stability, formation damage, crucial zonal isolation, and hydraulic fracturing are just some of the critical issues addressed by this course. Hydraulic fracturing aspects of unconventional resources plays, including conductivity, prop-pant selection, and practices, are discussed. A combined practical and technical theme is employed, with emphasis on economy and efficiency in designing, completing, and producing horizontal and multilateral wells.
You will learn how to:
Successfully design and optimize horizontal and multilateral well completions
Engineer wells, taking into account limitations imposed by well bore stability and borehole friction.
Determine the appropriate zonal isolation methods for horizontal and multilateral wells.Identify key components of fracture design and analysis in horizontal wells
Design damage removal, stimulation, and work over operations.
