2014 China Study 4

From May 16-31, 11 Texas A&M University petroleum engineering students attended a study abroad program in China. The course, taught by professors Ding Zhu, Rashid Hasan and Jiajing Lin, is PETE 325, Petroleum Production Systems, and is an introduction to production operations and oil field equipment.

This was a two-week program. The first week, the students went to China Petroleum University to study production operations such as: multiphase flow in pipes, bottomhole pressure prediction, inflow and outflow performance, production systems and backpressure analysis, hydraulic fracturing fluids and equipment; downhole and artificial lift equipment, tubulars, workover, completion and procedures; produced fluids, fluid separation and metering, safety systems, pressure boosting and monitoring. The second week, the students went to Dagang Oilfield. During the oilfield trip, the students visited a rod pump, completion, and workover facility.
