Production Gauging Principles & Methods 1-day Tutorial
University of Phoenix*
4900 California Ave
Bakersfield, CA 93309
Includes comprehensive course book, lunch and refreshments during class.
This one-day professional short course covers basic well gauging principles and methods used to monitor
heavy oil production from steamflood or cyclic steam projects. A
comprehensive review of AWT fundamentals, including phase separation
efficiency, water cut measurement, flow rate measurement, and assessment
of gauging accuracy is presented along with guidelines for establishing
the appropriate gauging frequency and duration for improved monitoring
of steamflood and cyclic steam producers.
is designed for facility, production and reservoir engineers currently
responsible for the design, implementation, operation and management of
steamflood or cyclic steam projects. However, the contents of this course
will also benefit other technical personnel involved in the operation and
management of steamflood or cyclic steam producers.

Castrup has over thirty-five years of experience in heavy oil recovery and is currently President of Integrated Sciences Group. Since joining Integrated
Sciences Group, she has developed several measurement science and
petroleum engineering courses and provided engineering consulting
services for monitoring and optimizing heavy oil projects in California,
Canada and the Middle East. Prior to joining
Integrated Sciences Group, Ms. Castrup was Technical Advisor for Thermally
Enhanced Oil Recovery in Chevron’s Western Basins Group providing in-house consultation on all aspects of steamflood and cyclic steam project design,
implementation and evaluation. She was also a Production/Reservoir
Engineer, managing both cyclic steam stimulation and steamflood projects
in several heavy oil properties in the San Joaquin Valley, and spent
eleven years as a Research Engineer at Chevron Oil Field Research
Center. She has published numerous technical papers and holds several
patents relating to heavy oil recovery.
She is a recipient of the
2007 SPE International Award for distinguished contributions to petroleum
engineering projects, facilities and construction. Click
