Volumetric & Stripping

Duration: 2 days

About this course

This course covers both the Volumetric Method and the Combined Volumetric and Stripping Method. Basic well control principles are used to formulate and explain the theory of both methods. Equipment requirements and surface equipment setup for the Combined and Volumetric Stripping Method is discussed. Examples and questions are used to illustrate and practice with calculations. Considerable time will be spent in the simulator room to learn how to apply both methods.

Course fee for the Volumetric & Stripping course is EUR1350 (excl. VAT).
