The overall objective of this course is to provide practising engineers with the tools to tackle well decommissioning projects or campaigns. It is delivered by one or more of Well Decom’s three Directors, Steve Jewell, Graeme Johnston or Peter Greaves (Trainer Profiles) each with extensive well engineering and decommissioning experience, almost exclusively with Operating companies.
The course will focus on engineering best practice and you will learn how industry guidelines are implemented in both the planning and execution of decommissioning projects. You will become familiar with associated risks and uncertainties and begin to feel confident about how to manage these in the planning stage and deal with them as you progress to the operational phase. The selection of technologies and techniques for a wide range of well scenarios will also form an important part of this comprehensive technical course.
The course will be delivered using a combination of instruction, facilitation of group discussions and the regular use of practical examples and exercises, including a full field decommissioning case study. This approach will provide valuable practical insights into the planning of well decommissioning and the management of key related risks and uncertainties.
7 hours CPD
This course is intended primarily for technical staff (of all disciplines) not already accustomed to P&A activities or unfamiliar with industry guidelines and regulations. The course is also suited to Technical Management requiring an in-depth appreciation of the challenges associated with decommissioning and insight into the meaning and importance of relevant regulation, guidelines and standards.
