Training For Your Staff
How many times have you attended a training course, gone back to your office, put the manual in your book case and carried on doing your work the same way as you did before?
Why is this? Most training is very general, too theoretical and does not directly tell you how to resolve the problems that you face. Oil and gas wells and reservoirs are different, even within the same field the wells can have different characteristics. How often have you had training that helps you address the specific problems and challenges?….I suspect never……until now!
ALP Limited provides customized specific training, for your staff, in your location, tailored specifically to the problems you face on your wells.
Regardless of your artificial lift method we can teach it. Whether you are interested in a course that provides an overview of all lift methods or a very detailed course on one method we can develop an agenda to address the issues in your wells and meet your needs.
If you are interested in training please contact us to explain your needs and we will develop an agenda customized to your requirements
Typical themes that can be covered as part of a course are:
Lift method selection
Artificial lift design
Operating practices and procedures
Troubleshooting, Diagnosis and Interpretation
Production optimization techniques
Automation and system protection
Use of software (Nodal analysis)
Our typical training process for Production Optimization involves follow-up and coaching as part of a three step process:
- Introduction to basic theory and concepts related to diagnosis, interpretation and analysis
- Training in use of software to perform analysis
- Coaching in analysis of your wells
As part of our training process we teach your staff how to identify and prevent lost production. Then we can coach them through the process of evaluating your wells and identifying your production enhancing opportunities.
Most artificial lift training focuses on the equipment – nuts and bolts. This training does not! This training will focus on:
- The effect of artificial lift in your wells,
- Understanding the well performance,
- Understanding the lift performance,
- Optimizing production,
- Diagnosis and resolution of problems,
- Using the well operating parameters for design of future systems
- Improving procedures associated with the equipment lifecycle
Our training will be specifically tailored to meet the needs of all levels in your organization from a junior field technician to the most experienced reservoir or production engineer. Our responsibility is to work at a level that will allow your personnel to understand and learn.
Group exercises form an integral part of the training, to ensure that your staff can understand, discuss and communicate their learning’s. The course learning’s are reinforced through homework each night, a test every morning and a final exam to evaluate attendees improvement during the course. Upon successful completion of the course certificates are issued (with grades).
An important aspect of this training is the opportunity to identify tangible actions to improve your well operations, improve the application of artificial lift and reduce lift cost ($/bbl). Any course will start with the proposition that if we do the same after the course as before – then we are failing! All such actions will be captured during the process of the training and a compiled, prioritized list of these actions provided upon completion of the training process.
For such training it is recommended to involve production engineers, reservoir engineers, field personnel and perhaps even the personnel of your artificial lift equipment supplier – because the whole group has to do their work together in order to optimize artificial lift systems and well performance.
If you are interested in training please contact us to explain your needs and we will develop an agenda customized for your company.
We promise you that your staff has never had artificial lift training like this……
How do we know….?
Because, as a result of teaching more than 80 courses of this type all over the world the feedback is always the same: that this training is new, different with value and benefit for everybody…..but don’t just take our word for it read what our clients said….
