This extensive course covers an introduction to petroleum production, well performance concepts and applications (well modelling with Prosper) and a review of artificial lift systems design and diagnosis and applications in unconventional reservoirs. Production operations topics include data measurement and analysis, well surveillance, well integrity, well intervention and sand control, formation damage and stimulation, production chemistry and flow assurance, surface production facilities and fluids treatment and corrosion control and materials selection. This course provides a solid and comprehensive foundation for all production engineers.
. . . anyone wishing to learn about the concepts and applications of production operations engineering.

On completion of the final course exam you will receive a certificate of completion of your course. Recognised by major players in the industry across the world, these certificates will help to confirm your training record and your progress within the profession. Accreditation from the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) is in progress.
Digital badges are awarded upon the successful completion of a set of skills (micro-credentials) that form a competency set for Production and Reservoir Engineers.
Upon successful completion of a module (set of courses) a certificate will be issued which will enable the user to apply to Robert Gordon University (RGU) to take the formal assessments (coursework and written examination), successful completion of which will give credit towards their M.Sc. in Petroleum Production Engineering.
First of all it is fantastic! The setup is easy to understand and your introduction helps to clarify all open questions. The search function works well. I tested a key words and I always found what I wanted.
I really think the bitesize videos are excellent. They are so easy to dip in and out. It allows me to go exactly to the part I am interested in. It is the perfect tool for on-the-job learning – the perfect virtual colleague who can answer all your quick questions.
The videos are very didactic, short and with concise explanations. I have been using it to remind me of important concepts in the well performance theme and also to learn about some software applications. And definitely I can apply on my day-to-day job. I found it very useful and a fast way of learning, rather than being in a classroom.
Track your progress as you grow your skills, in your own time. Take interactive assessments to put your new knowledge to the test and prepare for that interview or evaluation, while refreshing your memory with our quick revision videos. Earn badges to demonstrate your new skills or those of your team – and watch your achievements mount up as you go. This is how to learn, in your time.
