This course is aimed at petroleum, production and operation engineers who wish to gain an insight in to the Field Development Process and the role of Production Engineering and Drilling. It will explain the Petroleum Engineering context within which Production Engineering and Drilling Operations take place. The emphasis on down hole technology will be complemented by a facilities, operations and environmental review.
This course focuses on the overriding goal of oil and gas production engineering: to extract the maximum amount of hydrocarbons at minimum cost. This is achieved by designing and overseeing the most efficient day to day oil and gas production operations from the reservoir, up the well and through the processing and storage operations at the surface. And also its aims to develop a solid comprehension of engineering principles as they are specifically applied in oil and gas production. The six detailed course modules are sequentially designed to build up core knowledge, providing a systematic approach for students to acquire essential understanding of oil and gas production terminology and basic engineering equations, procedures, and models.
Production engineers have to possess a diverse set of skills, competencies and knowledge based on a deep understanding of oil and gas production operations and techniques. This elearning course will help you gain such an understanding, with the flexibility to learn while you work, wherever you are in the world.
