Calgary, AB – December 21, 2018 – Members of the Society of Petroleum Engineers wanting to gain expertise on sand control design are turning to experts at RGL. The accredited international member organization representing more than 158,000 E&P professionals across 143 countries has partnered with RGL to offer a one-day training course entitled Sand Control for Heavy Oil Development.
The course reviews fundamental sand control design for heavy oil development with a focus on cold primary production and thermal application. It goes on to detail the mechanisms, applications, and challenges of the various sand control options in both vertical and horizontal applications. It mainly focuses on a practical project requiring the participants to apply what they have learned by selecting, designing and presenting the most appropriate sand control completion for several case study wells for both cold primary and thermal application.
The course also reviews several field failure examples and case studies to guide engineers to better understand the factors contributing to sand control failure and how they can operate their wells to understand and minimize their risks.
Specific topics include:
