Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes real-life case studies where participants will be engaged in a series of interactive small groups and class workshops. This course is designed to provide participants with a detailed and up-to-date overview of water flooding, reservoir souring and water breakthrough. It covers the basic concepts of reservoir souring and water breakthrough; the operational troubleshooting techniques to arrive to the cause and to eliminate it through a solution development; the process and equipment problems including past problems associated with start up, shut down, ESD and standard non-compliance; and the prolonged feed specification, sea water and effluent water quality and chemical dosage problems. Further, the course will also discuss the pressure management and problems; the factors affecting waterflood success; the types of oil reservoirs more favorable for water flood; the integrity management in water injection wells; the water flood plant injection water quality and chemical treatment; the annulus pressure management, water injection problems and injection well integrity; the injection profiles, drilling patterns and reservoirs response to water influx; and the water lifting/transfer from source location and filtration and chemical injection.During this interactive course, participants will learn the water property monitoring/recording; the high pressure and high flow rate pumping equipment; installing and operating temporary injection facilities; the optimization of chemicals and quality control; the water treatment plant operator, water sources and treatment; the reservoir management and intake structures; the types of water problems, corrosion control and tools of diagnosis the water problems; the methods of water control; monitoring and analysing water production; the water separation and treatment; the layouts of field production facilities, scale, bacteria and corrosion problems; the water treatment methods and corrosion monitoring; the chemical treatment and corrosion control; and the role of operations optimizations to avoid corrosion.
