Production Methods

Apply basic production engineering principles to optimizing the reservoir exploitation scheme. Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: select the optimal completion design and the proper surface and subsurface equipment for producing a flowing oil well efficiently and economically, optimize flowing well performance based on knowledge of inflow performance, vertical lift performance and surface choke performance, determine when artificial lift will be necessary in order to maintain oil production at desired levels, and select the most appropriate lift method for a given well, as well as specify design and equipment requirements for placing a well on artificial lift.
