Mathematical Design and Simulation of Gravel Pack Operations
The primary objective of this course is to present a design methodology to plan a gravel pack operation. Particular emphasis is on proppant bed hieght predictions for various proppant concentration, fluid type, and flowrates from both a steady-state and transient viewpoints.
This short course can be taught either at client location or in the Houston area. For additional information please contact us at   +1 (832) 295-1521 or info [at] BTechSoft [dot] com
Duration: 1 day
