Course Description

Course Outline



Production Gauging Principles & Methods 1-day Tutorial


University of Phoenix*

4900 California Ave

Bakersfield, CA 93309

$895 per Student - 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.


This course 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.
