Course Introduction:

This programme is designed for people in critical well control positions on drilling installations as well as onshore roles.   Level 3  course is designed for anyone expected to shut-in a well in case of unintended or unexpected flow, such as drillers and assistant drillers.  Level 4 is designed for Wellsite Supervisory and office-based personnel that are primarily involved with the well design and operational decision making process and those involved with potential well kill methodology.

This course is designed to meet the requirements of IWCF and can be completed with either Surface or Combined BOP Certification. IWCF training levels 2 to 4 are designed to be sequential and first-time candidates are expected to complete Level 2 before progressing to Level 3. However, the training levels are also designed to be role-specific and dependent on the candidate’s work experience. For guidance and advice on which level of training you are eligible for, please get in touch.

  • 2018-05-07 - 2018-05-08 All day

    Introduction:

    Well integrity is characterised by any operating well that has two qualified well barriers. Lack of attention to well integrity management might cause a production, reputational, financial loss, damage to humans or the environment.

    It is essential to develop and certify a well integrity management approach that delivers a distinct methodology including operating standards, guidelines and procedures, guaranteeing a non-interruptive well operation under the highest safety applications, attaining a longer well life cycle along with a quicker payback period, and a greater return on investment.

    This workshop will focus on:

    • Well life cycle assurance in downturn times
    • Preventive maintenance
    • Constant monitoring and evaluation (well examination)
    • Enhancing competency
    • Control/remedy and audit/verification

    Who should attend:

    • ​​Drilling and Completion Engineers
    • Well Integrity Engineers
    • Production Engineers
    • ​​Petroleum Engineers
    • Data Analytics Specialists
    • Compliance Engineers

    Format

    Two (2) days of informal discussions prompted by selected keynote presentations and discussions. Workshops maximise the exchange of ideas among attendees and presenters through brief technical presentations followed by extended Q&A periods. Focused topics attract an informed audience eager to discuss issues critical to advancing both technology and best practices. The majority of the presentations are in the form of case studies, highlighting engineering achievements, and lessons learnt. In order to stimulate frank discussion, no proceedings are published and the press is not invited to attend.

    About This Course

    It has been estimated that poor well integrity has cost operators around the world over US$75 billion since 2009. As oil prices continue to plummet and margins remain low, operators are becoming increasingly sensitive to such risks.

    This intensive five-day course is designed to deepen your knowledge of well integrity management, and skills for designing, operating, and maintaining well equipment. The ultimate goal is to optimize productivity at the lowest Unit Operating Cost (UOC) and to maintain mechanical integrity throughout well life cycle.

    Well Integrity management is looked at in three distinct stages. The first stage is during the well design which includes material selection, engineering design, cement design, coating and inhibitors and cathodic protection. The second stage is monitoring the well during the life of the well locating possible leaks and/or loss of metal. The last stage is to manage and control any well integrity issues using specialized products, services and techniques.

    Why You Should Attend

    This course will enable you to understand the well integrity management principles and well integrity components during the lifecycle of the well and acquire the tools and methods to eliminate and/or mitigate the loss the well integrity during design, construction, and well operations.

    Who Should Attend

    Personnel directly responsible and or involved in Well Integrity, its design, verification and intervention should attend. Examples of who may be required to have this training are as follows: Completion Engineers, Well Services Engineers, Well Integrity Management Engineers, Drilling/completion/intervention engineers (including drilling supervisor and drilling superintendent), Production Technologists and Production Operation personnel (including OIM, Area Production supervisors), HSE personnel.

    What You Will Learn

    You will learn how to manage a well within its operating envelope which has lost its integrity.

    • Understand the Well Integrity ISO Standard
    • Well barriers and their verification
    • Define the building blocks of a successful well integrity management programme
    • Define well integrity well categorization based on compliance to the barrier policy outlined in the regulations and develop an approach to risk management
    • Discuss well-completion design and construction to create a “integer” well with lowest life cycle maintenance cost from a WIM prospective
    • Monitoring and surveillance of well integrity (focus on cementing)
    • Monitoring and surveillance of well integrity (focus on corrosion)
    • Investigate and manage well integrity issues, causes & potential solutions
    • Understand repairs to address “Loss of Well Operating Envelope
    • Understand Well Suspension & Well Abandonment

    About This Course

    This intensive five-day course is designed to provide participants with a thorough knowledge of completion equipment and operational procedures required for converting a drilled well into an efficient and safe producer. It follows a practical approach for the various completion types, specific applications, completion installation and workovers.

    Why You Should Attend

    • Recognizing the main differences in planning/design between HPHT and standard [conventional] wells, as well as the challenges that will have to be faced
    • Drilling and tripping operational challenges and practices and how to manage these effectively
    • Identifying wellbore breathing [a.k.a. ballooning] and how to safely deal with this within the narrow window for mud density selection
    • Practicing consistent fingerprinting and to developing procedures for the rig team
    • Measuring and understanding of bottom hole pressure and the effect of influencing factors like temperature, rotation and flow rate
    • Understanding the critical mud properties to alleviate barite sag and mud density control in general
    • Managing losses and low fracture gradients with well bore strengthening methods
    • Understanding how MPD can assist in the safe and efficient drilling of HPHT wells
    • Identifying critical Early Kick Detection Systems [EKDS] and HPHT well control equipment
    • Executing safe secondary well control practices, on and off bottom and handling of gas at surface, using MGS and hydrate mitigation measures
    • Appreciating why crew training and optimal communication will greatly assist in achieving the ultimate HPHT well objectives

    Who Should Attend

    The course is meant for experienced engineers directly or indirectly involved in the delivery of HPHT wells such as office-based planning and operations well engineers and field-based operator/contractor supervisory staff. Participants to this course must have prior awareness level knowledge about HPHT well engineering and operations concepts. This is an intermediate level course.

    About the Trainer

    Gerard de BlokGerard holds a BSc degree in Mechanical Engineering and has 41 years of experience as a Well Engineer. From 1974 till 2007 he worked for Shell International as Senior Drilling Supervisor, Drilling Application Engineer, Drilling Projects Engineer and as Training Course Director. His work in Shell had provided him the opportunity to work in several international field locations, including Malaysia, Russia, Oman, Netherlands, Denmark and Indonesia. From 2007 to 2015, he worked as Wells Staff Development Manager in China, responsible for coaching, mentoring and recruiting the new generation of well engineers. He has a great interest and has been actively involved in matter related to well control since 1994, notably his period as IWCF Chairman in the 1990’s. Gerard is an IWCF and IADC approved Instructor and Assessor and provides lectures on Well Engineering topics like Basic and Advanced Well Engineering, Stuck Pipe Prevention and HPHT Planning & Well Control. He also held the function of field visit coordinator and lecturer in Drilling Engineering at the Delft University of Technology, Department of Geo-technology. Gerard now works as a consultant providing various well engineering courses.
