The oil industry continues to reinvent itself with each passing day and is not a secret to anyone that continues to be the undisputed leader for the world economy. Staying ahead when it comes to acquiring related knowledge will take you one step closer to achieving your goals as an expert in the field.

Learning is the most valuable thing you can share and acquire. Fortunately, with the advancement of technology, it is easier to expand our knowledge through online courses. At UPC Global Academy, we have online courses that are perfectly suited to the topics you need to learn to stand out from the rest, enriching your curriculum summary as well.

The 3 online courses that will position yourself in the global market

  • Continuous Gas Lift (English): Continuous Gas Lift (CGL) is an artificial lift system that involves injecting gas into the tube using an essentially designed downhole GL valve and located for this purpose.


CGL has been in use for many decades and is commonly used in many fields around the world. However, there are some conceptual and operational aspects that are not clearly understood and require detailed review to ensure the proper application of this method.


The purpose of this course is for you to understand the theoretical foundations of Continuous Gas Lift and the interrelation of all the components that make up this system.

  • Nodal Analysis (English): Nodal analysis is the fundamental method most used by production engineers or operators to study and evaluate oil or gas wells. Nodal analysis is a technique to determine the flow condition of a well through two subsystems: "Inlet" and "Outlet" defined by a "node" (reference point).


The concepts of nodal analysis apply to natural flow wells, artificial lift wells to injection wells, and for this reason, it is important to understand the purpose, assumptions, and limitations of the method.

The objective of this online course is for you to understand the principles of nodal analysis, the concepts, the phenomena involved and how they interrelate with the ultimate goal of predicting flows and pressures throughout the system for the production or injection of wells.

  • Echometer technology and well analysis fundamentals (Spanish): The objective of this course is to provide the production engineer or operator with all the data necessary to analyze the performance of an oil or gas well, through the combinations of equipment and computer programs, and thus obtain a more accurate reading according to the condition of the well.


The Echometer technology is the one that is prevailing within the oil companies, and its precision and ease of application have made it essential when optimizing oil or gas wells.
