Course description

Production Problem Diagnosis

The early detection of “Problems” in producing and injection wells is one of a Production Engineer’s primary responsibilities. The earlier that one recognizes a problem exists, the less severe the problem, the sooner the problem can be corrected, and the sooner the production rate will be restored. This skill module focuses on four primary aspects of “Problem Wells”:

  1. Causes
  2. Effects
  3. Detection
  4. Prevention
