Integrated Production Optimization (IPO)

From Russia to South America, EPT International has been sharing their expertise with industry professionals for years by means of focused technical courses. Now, based on the knowledge that using an integrated approach to provide engineered recommendations will result in enhanced recovery, optimized production and maximized profits, EPT International developed a new course, Integrated Production Optimization (IPO).

Using well recognized production analysis techniques, IPO is the philosophy of understanding the full development cycle from conventional and unconventional reservoir characterization, conceptual drilling and hydraulic fracture design, through optimal recovery, to determining and optimizing the production of the hydrocarbon reserves in place. Through proper reservoir characterization, your engineers will be able to close the loop and design the most appropriate well and completion designs, drilling patterns, development plans that ultimately help deliver the highest profits for your operating company.


The Integrated Production Optimization course is a comprehensive course that focuses on hydrocarbons exploration and exploitation, from geophysics to production optimization and implementation. It covers all steps required for your engineering team to achieve an optimized well in an integrated manner.
