The overall objective of this course is to provide delegates with an introduction to the basic technical aspects of well decommissioning and how this activity fits into oil and gas decommissioning projects overall. It is delivered by one of Well Decom’s three Directors, Steve Jewell, Graeme Johnston or Peter Greaves (Trainer Profiles) each with extensive well engineering and decommissioning experience, mostly with Operating companies.
The course will focus on why and how well decommissioning is done and will highlight the risks and uncertainties faced by engineers and how this can impact on the financial performance of a decommissioning project. New and emerging technologies and techniques will also be covered to consider where improved performance in well abandonment techniques may emerge in the future.
The course will be delivered using a combination of instruction and the facilitation of group discussion. No specific technical knowledge is required, although familiarity with oil and gas practices is assumed.
7 hours CPD
This course is intended primarily for non-technical staff (of all disciplines) and Managers looking for an overview of what well decommissioning involves, how costs are estimated and how well work fits into the overall decommissioning process.
