Course Description


The Production Engineering mission is to design, construct, operate and maintain any well, so that it is safe for use from spud to abandonment, delivering maximum value to the business. Production Engineering is the discipline that integrates subsurface and surface in the oil and gas upstream industry. Traditionally, Production Technologists are known as “Well Doctors”, as their focus area is the well. However, their remit extends from the reservoir, through the well into the production system and export. Over the years, the Production Engineering has taken centre stage in the development of Well, Reservoir and Facility Management and Production Optimisation.

This training course lays the foundation for Production Engineering, covering the essential components of the discipline, with theory, exercises and group work. In addition, we will cover the application of Production Engineering on Well Performance, Completion Design, Perforating, Artificial Lift, Stimulation, Sand Management, Well, Reservoir and Facility Management and Production Optimisation. The whole Production Engineering training course is highly interactive with opportunities for participants to share their experience and expertise. At the end of the Production Engineering training course, there is an opportunity to brainstorm and troubleshoot real issues, that participants have, which they can take back and apply their learnings to their wells and fields.

This GLOMACS Production Engineering training course will highlight:

  • The Role of the Production Engineering
  • Essential components of the Production Engineering discipline
  • The application of Production Engineering in the oil and gas business
  • Fundamentals of well completion design
  • How to maximise oil and gas production and recovery


By the end of this Production Engineering training course, participants will learn to:

  • Define the role of the Production Engineering function in the oil and gas business
  • Describe the essential components of the Production Engineering discipline
  • Explain how the basic applications of Production Engineering tools and techniques work
  • Apply the fundamentals of well completion design
  • Describe how to maximise oil and gas production and recovery

Training Methodology

Participants will engage in a highly interactive learning experience, with a blend of class room learning, exercises, group work and discussion. The instructor will apply a range of proven adult learning teaching and facilitation techniques, which will address participants’ learning preference styles. Active participation is essential, to share experiences and expertise of the tutor, as well as the participants. We can all learn from each other.

Organisational Impact

By attending this Production Engineering training course, the organisation will develop staff that can maximise production and recovery, in a safe, sustainable and cost-effective manner. The organisation will be benefit from:

  • Improved well completion design to safeguard well integrity and well operations
  • Skilled well performance analysis to optimise production and injection
  • Optimal artificial lift and stimulation solutions
  • Safe operations from Integrated Sand Management to the production system
  • Implementation of Well, Reservoir and Facility Management
  • Production System Optimisation with an integrated team

Personal Impact

The participants will be able to:

  • Apply well completion design to improve well integrity and safe well operations
  • Analyse well performance to optimise production and injection
  • Recommend artificial lift and stimulation techniques
  • Apply integrated sand management to the production system
  • Implement well, reservoir and facility management
  • Carry out production system optimisation with an integrated team
