Course Description

The completion configuration is an important part of sustained access to and production from the reservoir. This course begins with an overview of the most common configurations of cased-hole completions and their application. The course then shifts to lecture and activity on the design, purpose, pros, and cons of the three main components of cased-hole completion: packers, flow control, and safety systems. The course ends with an exercise that challenges the participant to match cased-hole completion configurations with the well specifications.

Topics include:

  • Introduction to the various configurations of cased-hole completions systems in the context of reservoir challenges they are designed to overcome.
  • Packer types
  • Packer selection
  • Packer setting and retrieval
  • Packer assembly
  • Flow control systems and components
  • Installing flow control systems
  • Rationale for safety systems
  • Safety system designs, components, and operations
