Basic Oilfield Operations Training

This 16-hour course will cover 8 topics:
• Positive Displacement Pump Principles
• Centrifugal Pump Principles
• Production Separator Principles
• Emulsions and Heat Treater Principles
• Sucker Rod Pumping Principles
• Beam Pumping Units
• LACT Operation and Lease Tank Gauging and Testing

Each topic will be covered using the former ARCO Oil and Gas Company BOTS Training Series. Manuals will be used along with video instruction. Classroom discussion and overheads will enhance the exchange of ideas and clarify the processes. A test will be given at the end of each module.

This course assumes that the student has limited experience with the topics covered and that they have a basic understanding of fluid flow, temperature and pressure. At the completion of this course the student will be able to explain operating principles, identify major parts of oilfield operations equipment, and explain how oilfield fluids move from the producing reservoir interval to the pipeline and are treated for effective separation of oil.
