Work-over and Completion Operations

Well Drilling & Completion Technology


Work-over is performed after the initial completion to reestablish commercial production or injection, repair of a mechanical problem in the well, or plug and abandon the well. Work-over operations are usually initiated as hydrocarbon production rates decline substantially. Undesired fluid production could be the result of a poor primary cement job or water/gas coning. These workovers typically involve a remedial cement job to control the unwanted water/gas production. Well completion is performed at the completion of drilling operations to establish initial production from or injection into a well. Procedures of completion will vary depending on the completion type and the area. For Example flowing wells can simply be perforated and put on production. Low reservoir pressure areas often require an artificial lift mechanism (rod or submersible pump, gas lift valves, etc.) to produce at economic rates. This PetroDeep training course will highlight: • Types of Completions • Reasons for Work-overs and well preparation • Overview of Surface and Subsurface Well-bore Equipment and Procedures • Barriers, Completion and Work-over Fluids • Kick Causes, Warning Signs, kill methods and Risk awareness and Organizing a Well Control Operation WHAT ARE THE GOALS? By the end of this PetroDeep training course, participants will learn to: • Plan, design, manage and execute completion operation • Improve the overall operational performance during work-over operations • Select or recommend completion equipment for given field conditions and applications • Select the most commonly used downhole tools and explain their function
