OGOP 106 - Oil and Gas Field Operations One

OGOP 106 discusses origins of hydrocarbon bearing formations, exploration for hydrocarbons and the chemical composition of hydrocarbons. Procedures linked to artificial lift systems, pipeline pigging and crude oil production will be covered in detail. Students will also become familiar with wellheads, casing and completions, separators, heater-treaters, wastewater treatment, crude oil handling, and custody transfer.

Additional Comments:
There are four courses within the program, each with a final exam. One rewrite will be allowed by SAIT should a learner score lower than 50% on a final exam. One rewrite will be allowed by NLC per final exam, should the learner score between 50-64%. The maximum score on any rewrite will be capped at 65%. One mark is awarded for the successful completion of each course; each course comprises 25% of the program mark. All courses must be passed in order to receive a Certificate in Oil and Gas Field Operations.
