Description

This 1-day course develops strategies for completing horizontal wells. It covers both cased-hole and open-hole configurations, either with or without sand control. Participants will learn the applications and dynamics of horizontal wells, including drill-in fluids, hole displacement, cementing, perforating, and stimulation. They will also learn the guidelines for selecting stand-alone screens and executing horizontal gravel packs. Topics include:
 • Completion options
 • Cased-hole horizontal completions
 • Perforating and stimulating horizontal wells
 • Open-hole horizontal completions
 • Drill-in fluids
 • Zonal isolation and inflow control
 • Displacing the drill-in fluid

Why You Should Attend

Horizontal drilling was a step-change in the industry, but the technology is more expensive and riskier than drilling vertical or deviated wells. As a drilling, completion or reservoir engineer, it is important for you to understand the many challenges and options of horizontal drilling.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for drilling, completion and reservoir engineers, and for service company personnel involved with planning, drilling, completing and operating horizontal wells.

Aaron Burton is the business development manager for Unconventional Completions, a group primarily focused on the completion of shales and similar unconventional plays that require multistage hydraulic fracturing. Burton joined Baker Hughes as a field engineer trainee for completion tools after graduation. During his tenure in operations, he has held the roles of field engineer, operations coordinator, and district engineer. He has completed wells in several unconventional plays in North America, including the Bakken, Marcellus, and the Lower Huron.



Burton holds a BS in mechanical engineering from Mississippi State University.
