 This 3-day introductory course is intended for personnel working indirectly with completion issues who require a fundamental overview of well completions, and is equally ideal for engineers-in-training (EIT's) or technical professionals from different specialist disciplines who wish to gain additional insights into well completions. The course provides an overview of the factors which influence the completion design process, and a fundamental explanation of well and service equipment and operations. Technical explanations of common practices are given, along with troubleshooting hints, strategies for getting the most out of equipment, and a methodology for detailed field operations programming.  

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.
