Steam injection in oil field

Date: 16 October 2017 - 20 October 2017
Course ID: ADDK005/2017
Duration: 5 Days
Fee US $: 3250 US$
Venue: Istanbul / Turkey

Introduction:

Steam Injection is a thermal drive process that adds heat to the reservoir to expand the oil-in-place, reduce it viscosity, provide drive and thereby improve the displacement efficiency of injected fluid. Upon completion of this course, participants will have a thorough understanding of the fundamental concepts of steam injection processes in the field. The emphasis is the practical aspects of steam injection. Equations and calculation methods are included in the course.

Who should attend:

This course is designed for engineers, technicians, independent operators, Petroleum Production and Reservoir Engineers and their supervisors. Technical field personnel and services companies representatives to obtain or increase the understanding of the overall concepts and principles of Steam Injection Processes.
