OE692- Production optimization, control and Operational Safety

(10 - 21 May 2015, Dubai)

Course Description
This course introduces the different topics for production systems optimization technology, and control safety along with
operational safety. Among the topics discussed are reservoir
performance, lift systems, beam pumping and other topics. This
course will be an intensive course that will be over the span of
10 days. Many case studies will be introduced and discussed.

Course Objectives

n Introduction to Production Systems

By the end of this course, attendees will be able to:

n Understand the importance of operational safety, and what

are the best safety practices.

n Understand the issues of production optimization, and the


optimization of the performance of the different components

in the oil industry.
Gain knowledge about the different control system and elements in the oil and gas industry.
Understand international oil companies HSEMS standard
and be able to comply with them.
Understand the reasons for well production decline, be able
to review and monitor it, and be able to diagnose it and provide solutions for it.
Understand how to operate and use the different control systems such as DCS, PLC, UPS, SCADA, etc.

Who Should Attend?

Senior production operation staff, control engineers and production engineers.
