Course Details


From Date: 16-Jan-2022   
To Date: 20-Jan-2022
5 days
Drilling & Reservoir Training


Discussion on entire gamut of various artificial lift techniques deployed in onshore as well as offshore oil fields for optimum exploitation of hydrocarbons. Each mode of lift would be discussed in details about its designing criteria, selection, equipment description, techniques for the installation, their operations and trouble shooting.



The participants would be made adequately aware about the technology    inherent in each mode of artificial lift and they would be made fully conversant with their operational details. The working executives would be encouraged to get that doubts clarified during the course period. Adequate value would be added to each participant and their performance would enhance when they go their jobs in oil fields.



The course has been designed in such a way that participants either working in oil field or new entrants would get adequate benefits. Executives already on job would refresh their memory and add new technology to their knowledge. It is therefore suggested that every oil field worker / Executive having basic knowledge of oil industries will derive immense knowledge and confidence after attending the course. This would enable the freshers to work with these units in the fields with total confidence.
