Basic Well Testing & Control

Code : O/25

Course Objectives

Upon finishing of this course, paricipants will have good understanding about basic well testing & control fundamentals.

Behavior of reservoir fluids, rock fluids types, properties and emperical correlations, which must be employed for both oil and gas well testing & control.
