Introduction to HPHT Completions

Completions Production and Operations

Course Description

HPHT fields are increasing in relevance every year in different areas of the world. Conventional fields have represented the vast majority of application during the last years. However, unconventional fields, which require in some cases very high pressures to achieve the required fracture gradients and extend the flow area are becoming a very common area of application for HPHT well completion designs.

Engineers are responsible for enhancing their professional competence throughout their careers. Licensed, chartered, and/or certified engineers are sometimes required by government entities to provide proof of continued professional development and training. Training credits are defined as Continuing Education Units (CEUs) or Professional Development Hours (PDH).

Attendees of SPE training courses earn 0.8 CEUs for each day of training. We provide each attendee a certificate upon completion of the training course.

Peter Behrenbruch

Miguel Rosato is the HPHT Senior Completions Engineer with 15 years oil and gas experience in onshore and offshore (subsea and platform) well completions, workover, DST and well testing design. His area of expertise are on completion design, including HPHT Completions and DST, Subsea ESP completions, different types of sand control lower completions (open hole and cased hole gravel pack, stand alone and expandable sand screens) and dual completions. He has a multitude of experiences in design for completions systems (flow analysis, production system tubing sizing, tubular stress analysis, and material selection), HSE (risk assessment, multidisciplinary well on paper (WOP) exercises, peer review of operations plan and pre work safety meetings at the rig site), completions supervision experience in offshore platforms and semisubs, and contracting experience includes tender evaluations for completions, well heads, DST-TCP, coiled tubing, stimulation, well testing and slickline services. He is also involved in project management includes schedule organisation for design, appraise, contract strategy, procurement of equipment and execution of HPHT well appraisal campaigns.
