Production & Completions Training Courses

Design For :

Designed For

All field, service, support, and supervisory personnel having interaction with Facilities Engineers and desiring to gain an awareness level understanding of the field processing of production fluids. This course is excellent for cross-training and delivers an understanding of all the fundamental field treating facilities.

You Will Learn

You will learn
  • A practical understanding of all the fundamental field treating facilities: what they are, why they are needed, how they work
  • The properties and behavior of crude oil and natural gas that govern production operations
  • Field processes for treating and conditioning full wellstream production for sales or final disposition
  • The basics of oilfield corrosion prevention, detection, and treatment
  • Internal workings of separators, pumps, compressors, valves, dehydrators, acid gas treatment towers, and other treating equipment
  • A wide range of produced fluid measurement and metering devices
  • A description of treating equipment whether located on the surface, offshore platform, or sea floor
