---------------------------------------------------- Course Description:-

On one hand, this one-day SAGD course can be considered a crash course for individuals who have just started work in SAGD industries, while on the other hand it is a course for individuals who have been working in SAGD for many years but have never had the chance to grasp a “high level picture” of SAGD plants.

The In-Situ Oil Extraction: SAGD course explains important and popular aspects of SAGD plants in a plain language easily understandable for individuals in managerial and technical roles.

Three main segments of SAGD plants/projects will be covered; CPF (Central Processing Facility), pipelines and well pads.

The approach taken is to initially take a black box approach for each element of the plant by covering the goal and duty of the item, then going through the black box by introducing different technologic bases and finally providing a physical sense regarding their size or other frequently-referred operating parameters.

For projects engineers and managers, a general SAGD plant will be examined through a panel-type exhaustive evaluation of the product from various aspects. These aspects include temperature and pressure profiles, chemical injection points, air emission points, disposal, recycle and rule of thumb for cost of the plant.

A complete set of course materials and lunch is included in the In-Situ Oil Extraction: SAGD course.
