Request In-house Training Proposal
Why Attend This Training Course?
Production Optimization: using NODAL Analysis Approach training course will  discuss the total producing system as a group of components encompassing reservoir rock, completions (gravel pack, open/closed perforations, open hole), vertical flow strings, restrictions, multilateral branches, horizontal/hilly terrain flow lines/risers, integrated gathering networks, compressors, pump stations, metering locations, and market/system rate/pressure constraints.

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 intensive course is aimed to Production, Mechanical and Chemical Engineers associated with the oil industry.

What Are The Training Course Objectives?
This course provides practical instructions on design and analysis of naturally flowing oil and gas wells, as well as artificial left methods based on   Nodal analysis - concepts.
