Horizontal Wells: Completion and Evaluation Featured Image

Horizontal Wells: Completion and Evaluation

Introduces the deliverability equation for horizontal wells. Compares horizontal and vertical well performance. Identifies formation characteristics that favor horizontal wells, and discusses methods for their determination. Describes basic well configurations and completion designs. Looks at practical aspects of cementing, zonal isolation, casing design and sand control. Address guidelines for matrix acid treatments and hydraulic fracture stimulations.

Cementing 2

Determine the most appropriate procedures, equipment, tools and cementing materials for assuring a high-quality cement job. Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: determine the volume, displacement and density requirements for cementing a casing string, select the cement additives appropriate to a given job, specify the casing accessories to be use on a primary cement job, outline the steps involved in cementing a string of casing, evaluate the results of a primary or squeeze cementing operation, and calculate the volumes and displacements required to set a cement plug.

Well Planning Featured Image

Well Planning

Introduces the drilling procedure and provides a clear "blueprint" for the safe, efficient drilling of a well. Integrates the mud, casing, bit, cementing and safety programs. Presents an understanding of how a well proposal is initiated and justified economically.

Well Completion Operations Featured Image

Well Completion Operations

Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: prepare the well for open-hole logging operations and take steps to ensure that such operations proceed smoothly, alert the wellsite geologist and service company logging engineer of hole conditions that may require modifications or special precautions in the logging program, assist in planning and carrying out a drill stem test, determine safe operating parameters for running a production casing string, plan and carry out a simple single-stage primary cementing operation, use temperature surveys to determine the top of cement in the casing/hole annulus, and outline the steps involved in preparing the well for final completion and releasing the drilling rig.

Well Design Featured Image

Well Design

Define basic well design parameters, including well profile, casing points and casing/hole diameters. Design casing strings and outline cementing requirements. Select surface equipment components. Generate preliminary cost estimates for inclusion in AFE. Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: select a surface location for a new well and establish an optimal target radius, pick casing points and specify casing and hole diameters for each drilled section, establish a well trajectory in keeping with overall drilling objectives, select casing weights, grades and connections based on consideration of maximum load conditions, determine general requirements for primary cementing operations, and specify wellhead equipment components and their working pressure ratings.

Cementing Featured Image


Introduces the chemistry and classification of oil well cements. Discusses the use of additives, API testing requirements, and slurry flow properties. Describes cementing equipment, procedures, and evaluation techniques for primary and remedial cementing.

Drilling Operations Featured Image

Drilling Operations

Monitor drilling parameters and well progress. Take steps to optimize bit runs, mud system performance and directional control. Ensure HSE compliance. Anticipate drilling problems and work to minimize their impact. Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: optimize drilling performance through careful monitoring and analysis of well parameters, select bottomhole assembly configurations for various hole intervals and operating conditions, oversee routine cementing operations in shallow hole intervals, diagnose a stuck pipe incident and outline fishing procedures, and monitor drilling parameters for indications of abnormal pore pressure and take the appropriate initial actions in response to a potential kick situation.
