Dubai, UAE
From Date: 02-Jan-2023   
To Date: 06-Jan-2023

Advanced Well Integrity Management is designed to provide the participants with knowledge to deeply investigate the faultier and risk of well integrity. The participants will have an excellent chance to share ideas and to correct the concept of well integrity management. This advanced training course will discuss the proper approach to decision-making to provide certainty within the organization. The course is designed to provide comprehensive information’s to all aspects of the well completion, well head equipment, well intervention, work-over and well integrity operations during the well life cycle and learn how to deal with harsh environments using different approachs to maintaing the well integrity during all production phases.

Several production enhancement cases will be discussed and all considerations that need  to be taken to maintain well integrity. Attendees will be actively encouraged to participate. The course content will be fully illustrated with actual data of design and troubleshooting real cases to aid understanding and help to overcome any difficult problems. Comprehensive course notes will be provided, which will form a valuable source of reference afterwards.


After completing this course the participants will have:

  • Fully understanding of Well integrity definations and operations
  • Fully understanding of all completion and wellhead component
  • The ability to design and supervise most work over and completion operations
  • The ability to take the necessary corrective action to deal with harsh environments
  • The experience regrding new completion system including sand control and intelligient completions
  • The experience to handle all expected intervention while ensuring the well integrity and avoiding all risks
  • Recommend suitable measures to mitigate concerns for formation damage/ skin removal and well stimulation operations
  • The ability to extend the well life and control it, achieve the optimum production
  • Principles of World-Class Digital Oilfield Implementation
    Develop the knowledge relationship between surface (Well Heads) and downhole.
    Investigate leaks and identify cause of leak
    Determine Tubing pressures (based on depth of perfs, density of fluid and BHFP).
    Explain influence of corrosion models on MAASP pressures and on Well Life Cycle
  • Improve the delegates’ appreciation of the well design and annulus construction; i.e. the well as a “pressure vessel”
  • Provide knowledge & understanding of the guidelines and standards that when observed and implemented effectively will ensure well integrity
  • Establish an increased awareness of well integrity issues and how they are controlled/managed and by whom

Provide knowledge of how to maintain equipment for safe and effective operation 


This course is designed for well integrity, work over, completion engineers, production technologists, well surveillance and well intervention teams. Petroleum Engineers , Production Personnel (Production Operators, Maintenance Supervisors), Drilling and Well Servicing Personnel (Drilling Manager, Drilling / Well Engineers, Completion and Well Service, Engineers, Drilling Supervisors, Rig Manager, Tool pusher, Drillers

Pre & Post Tests will be conducted

Case Studies, Group Exercises, Group Discussions, Last Day Review & Assessments will be carried out.


Note: The Course Manual will contain the Handouts as reference book as well as the Presentation Slides which will be used during the Course and supported by the Handouts.


A highly interactive combination of lectures and discussion sessions will be managed to maximize the amount and quality of information and knowledge transfer. The sessions will start by raising the most relevant questions, and motivate everybody find the right answers. You will also be encouraged to raise your own questions and to share in the development of the right answers using your own analysis and experiences.  Tests of multiple-choice type will be made available on daily basis to examine the effectiveness of delivering the course.
