Intelligent Wells, ICDs and AICDs: Petroleum Aspects of Advanced Completion Technology

Production and Operations Drilling Completions


This course presents the basic knowledge and fundamentals of advanced well completion technologies needed to identify, plan, and execute advanced completion projects. Participants will gain an understanding of the petroleum engineering considerations for advanced well completion applications such as project screening, well performance modeling and reservoir simulation. This course will review methods and workflows by which participants can select the appropriate advanced completion technology for their application.   They will also learn about the equipment, functionality, completion design and execution needed to successfully implement the project.

  • the elements of advanced completions and how they work
  • typical applications for advanced completions
  • the value proposition for advanced completion
  • how to select the right technology to maximize value
  • how to manage an advanced completion project
  • monitoring and operating advanced completions

Who Should Attend

This course is intended for reservoir, production, completion engineers, managers and other personnel who are interested in learning about intelligent wells, ICD's and AICD's and their potential applications.


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.

Special Requirements

Attendees must bring a laptop to class.

In-House Training

This course is available for in house training at your office location.
