Xmas Trees and Wellheads are critical equipment for oil production, water injection and downhole operation. They are installed on the casing head to seal the annular space, and they control the pressures in the Casings and Production Tubing, regulate the production rates and are very important barriers in case of leaks, and transport of oil to pipeline.

The Managing Wellsite Operations training course is designed to provide an up-to-date overview of Xmas Tree, Wellhead equipment, mechanical barriers, safety valves and wellhead operating control system. Participants will develop a better understanding of Wellhead operating procedures and working under safe conditions.


Participants on the Managing Wellsite Operations training course will be able to:

  • Apply and gain an in-depth knowledge on Xmas Tree & Wellhead operations, maintenance and testing
  • Discuss various Wellhead equipment as well as Xmas Tree, tubing hanger, production packers & landing nipples
  • Practice barriers principles & well safety on hydraulic barriers and mechanical barriers as well as subsurface control valve packer setting and testing
  • Demonstrate flanging of the Wellhead, Wellhead safety valves and control system
  • Apply the proper procedures of Xmas Tree and Wellhead operations to work under safe conditions
  • Select the appropriate lifting systems and equipment
  • Increase production from wells using lifting technology and optimization


The Managing Wellsite Operations training course is suitable for those who are involved in Xmas Tree and Wellhead operations, maintenance and testing such as:

  • Field operations team
  • Production, maintenance, petroleum, reservoir and field engineers
  • Wellhead maintenance supervisors


The Managing Wellsite Operations training course will be presented using a variety of learning methods, including lectures, properly designed slides, case studies and questionnaires, group work and discussions.

Pre & Post course assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of this training.
