Why Choose this Training Course

This is a 3-day classroom plug and abandonment training course. Well Abandonment is commonly the largest cost element of decommissioning and often results in significant cost overrun. However, adoption of good practices and lessons learnt from the growing portfolio of operations completed to date, have shown significant improvements in job duration and non-productive time. In addition, lessons learnt in job design can be used to ensure abandonment barrier quality, minimizing the risk of future environmental impact and liability for costly remedial well re-entry.

The course instructor draws on his extensive exposure to well abandonment design, planning and execution, bringing experience from projects in the North Sea, Gulf of Mexico, SE Asia, Australia, Brazil and South Africa.

The plug and abandonment course will include real life examples of good and poor practices to highlight how the specific challenges of abandonment can be confidently managed to give high quality isolation barriers while maintaining cost control.

Who Should Attend

  • Well Abandonment engineers engaged in design and operations
  • Engineering and operational team leaders
  • Operations supervisors and superintendents
  • Managers responsible for well abandonment planning and cost control

Key Learning Objectives
