Design Process for Completion and Workovers


About the Skill Module

This skill module focuses upon three main work products of a typical completion or workover design – the proposed well sketch, the proposed procedure, and then the underlying basis of design. In addition, field/rig morning reports are introduced and reviewed in view of the original design plans.

Target Audience

Graduates or engineers with experience, engaged in drilling operations, production operations, workover, and completions; petroleum engineering in both the service and operating sectors.

You Will Learn

Participants will learn how to:

  • Explain the work product of a completions engineer
  • Describe an initial completion procedure and sketch
  • Translate chronological steps from a procedure to a well sketch
  • Recognize and describe morning reports
  • Recognize the engineering that is required for developing a procedure
  • Explain and provide an example of Basis of Design (BOD)
  • Compare and contrast design and BOD
  • Illustrate and explain the link between management systems and the engineering design process
  • Identify the objectives of a completion
  • Identify and describe each aspect that is to be considered to achieve the two objectives
  • Compare the different drive mechanisms
