Baobab LMS is a completely new approach to micro-learning. It is all video-based and covers concepts and applications in commercial software such as Petex IPM and KAPPA workstation. This unique method allows effective learning for Petroleum Engineering wherever and whenever you need it, i.e. performance support or help at the moment of need.
In this ”Video Library” section, information is presented in the form of a searchable, digital library (or knowledge base) – informal learning, available 24/7 on any device.
Whether you’re an experienced professional or just starting out, good training is vital to your success – but how much will you remember of that one-off training course? How up to date is the information you search for online? With Baobab, there’s another way to learn.
Well performance includes a review of the core components of pressure loss in the well system (reservoir, wellbore and surface flowlines) and how these can be combined to predict well flowrates (nodal analysis). We also look at how artificial lift can increase production rates and examine in detail the major methods used (gas lift, ESPs, PCPs, HSPs, sucker rod pumps and jet pumps). To show these concepts in practice, we review well modelling (or nodal analysis) applications with commercial software including the design and diagnosis of artificial lift systems.
