Oilfield Safety

Introduces principles and general procedures for managing emergencies, reporting and investigating accidents, and maintaining safety in day-to-day activities. Addresses hazards that are common to most oil and gas sites, emphasizing awareness, planning and training as keys to preventing accidents.

Emotional Intelligence for Project Managers Featured Image

Emotional Intelligence for Project Managers

Emotional intelligence (EI) is our ability to identify and control our emotions to achieve positive outcomes in our relationships. Project managers with high EI are better equipped to deal with team members, vendors, stakeholders, and sponsors and to handle and resolve conflicts. This one-module course reviews the underlying concepts of emotional intelligence and explores how project managers can improve, and make use, of their emotional intelligence.

Overview of Rigless Well Intervention Featured Image

Overview of Rigless Well Intervention

This topic introduces the basic terminology, purpose, and economics of rigless well intervention. The health, safety, and environment (HSE) factors that must be considered when planning for and carrying out rigless well intervention activities are presented. The topic also covers the various tasks, roles, and responsibilities along with general preparation and well selection guidelines.

Gas Systems and Equipment

Besides sales contract restrictions, several other reasons exist for the removal of acid components from natural gas streams. Among these are personnel safety, odor reduction, and fuel Btu improvement. The process of removing water vapor from a gas stream is called "gas dehydration. This presentation discusses conventional TEG dehydration and presents a method to size and design the glycol dehydration equipment. Compressors are used whenever it is necessary to flow gas from a low pressure system to a higher pressure system. This presentation provides guidelines on selecting the type of compressor to use for each application, determining power requirements, and designing the piping system associated with the compressor.

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.

Initial Well Planning Featured Image

Initial Well Planning

Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: review an initial well proposal and identify key drilling and completion objectives, gather and evaluate offset data and other information pertinent to the well objectives, document and evaluate indicators of potential drilling hazards and/or HSE risks, identify appropriate methods for predicting pore pressures, fracture pressures, and subsurface temperatures, and plot predicted pressures and temperatures versus depth, determine formation fluids to be encountered and potential contaminants, outline critical issues relating to surface location, including those related to logistics, safety and environmental protection and generate a budget-level estimate of dry-hole and total well costs.
