Why Attend This Training Course?
It will consist of some theoretical classroom sessions conducted with experienced professional providing presentations of well testing equipment, procedures and operations. The participants will then have practical exposure sessions using the well testing flow loop and hands on sessions with various well testing tools in the training center. Participants will gain an understanding of the primary objective of surface and downhole well testing which is to assess well productivity by measuring gas, oil and water flow rates and pressures under controlled production conditions.

What Is The Training Course Methodology?
This training course methodology depends on enabling participants to interact and exchange experiences, explore their competencies and achieve their career aspirations, using forward-thinking training arts, such as theoretical lectures and/or open discussion to exchange opinions and experiences, scenarios, innovative thinking brainstorming. Participants will receive an agenda including training material as a reference, in addition to some extra notes and booklets. 

Who Should Attend This Training Course?
This training course is suitable all engineers and technicins who are in daily contact with valve, they will find their need for complete understanding and more details about valves

What Are The Training Course Objectives?
Upon finishing of this course, paricipants will have a great understanding about basic well testing & control fundamentals. Besides, the behavior of reservoir fluids, rock fluids types, properties and emperical correlations, which must be employed for both oil and gas well testing & control.
