Clustered Oil and Gas Fields-Directional and Multilateral Drilling-OGT 8007

10 Oct 22-21 Oct 22 (London, UK), 15 Aug 22-26 Aug 22 (London, UK), 14 Mar 22-25 Mar 22 (Dubai, UAE),

Course Overview

Current and future oil and gas fields are expected to remain pockets of small hydrocarbons which reside in spaced out plays relatively remote from one another and pose challenges, greater risks as well as higher costs to operators. Exploits of such spaced out reservoirs require that they be grouped / clustered together in order to generate combined economic flow of hydrocarbons and rewarding revenue.


Learning Outcome

At the end of the course, delegates will:

  • Have better understanding of features and properties of clustered oil and gas fields
  • Have better understanding of clustered directional and multilateral drillings
  • Be able to adopt and implement directional and multilateral drillings
  • Be able to implement enhanced oil recovery and decommissioning operations.
