Course Description
Smart wells provide real time monitoring and control of production and injection by downhole valves and sensors. The sensors provide data to remotely regulate the well performance and optimize production. Smart well technology minimizes well intervention and maximizes reservoir productivity. Since the initiation of first smart well in 1997 ( North sea), considerable number of smart wells are developed in the world. In this course, the basic principles and fundamentals of intelligent completions are discussed. Smart well and smart field planning, design and implementation are presented. The main considerations for screening, modeling and application of smart wells are covered and field applications are presented.

A complete set of course materials and lunch is included in the Smart Wells course.

Who Should Attend
This course is intended for Managers, Engineers (including reservoir, production, drilling and completion), planning and operations staff and personnel of other disciplines interested in becoming familiar with smart well technology and the potential applications.

Davood Khairkhah, Ph.D., P.Eng.
Graduated with M.S and Ph.D. in Petroleum Engineering from The University of Southern California, Dr. Khairkhah has over 30 years of experience working and teaching in Canada and internationally, in the oil & gas industry and universities, including the University of Calgary and the University of Southern California. He has presented courses in the areas of sensors and smart wells/reservoirs, production engineering, reservoir engineering, reservoir modeling, underground gas storage, fractured reservoirs, well testing, EOR methods, water flooding, and natural gas transmission and processing. His courses have been attended by technical and non-technical participants, ranging from young professionals to senior management.

Industrial projects include field development planning, reservoir characterization, integrated reservoir study, reservoir simulation, water and gas injection in oil reservoirs, horizontal well, multi-stage hydraulic fracturing, reserve analysis, well test design and analysis for conventional and unconventional reservoirs, gas storage development and performance analysis, PVT and core analysis, and gas production from gas hydrate reservoirs.
