1 HOUSTON COMMUNITY COLLEGE (NORTHEAST CAMPUS) MISSION STATEMENT: Houston Community College will be the most relevant community college in the country. We will be the opportunity institution for every student we serve essential to our community s success. WELCOME: I welcome each of you to a semester of intricate study based upon an industry and data- related inquiry of the salient and functional features of the oil and gas industry. At the end of this course, each student will have a broader view of this industry. Scholarship and class participation in all of its aspects is the key and that is what will be expected. There is no recording of classes either audio or video without consent of instructor or the Disability Services Office. Course Description: A study of the petroleum industry will be undertaken from the data management perspective. A review of current knowledge and technical aspects of the oil and gas industry will be reviewed with regard to the various operational functionalities of Well Completions under various wellbore conditions. Prerequisites: PTRT 1470; Microsoft Office suite will be used for Projects and class presentations. Students are expected to be able to use Microsoft Word and PowerPoint. Course Goals: Students will be able to understand the basic tools and terminology used in upstream operations. Students will work in teams to gather 1

2 facts and information on key data used to deliver projects during exploration and production. Students are expected to make use of the information gathered in teams and class to comprehend text book and current event subjects relevant to well completions. Students will be able to understand the technical aspects and the process of completing oil and gas well from a systematic and pragmatically point of view, contribute responsibly in the industry, college, on work teams in order to perform the designated and various tasks needed in the oil and gas industry.. Students will be able to identify key terminology and units for gathering data in the field for upstream activities. Instructor Information: Instructor: Edna Ouko- Lehnert Phone Number: Course schedule: Tuesday 5:00PM 7:00PM Office Hours: By appointment only Instructors Biography: Refer to LinkedIn. Education: o MSc: Gubkin University o BSEng: Gubkin University o Higher Diploma- United Nations University- Iceland. 2

3 TEXTBOOK INFORMATION: Technical Edition: Well Completion and Servicing by D. Perrin ISBN ISBN: Additional information will be provided as needed via instructor handouts. Lab Requirements: Students with Disabilities: None "Any student with a documented disability (e.g. physical, learning, psychiatric, vision, hearing, etc.) who needs to arrange reasonable accommodations must contact the Disability Services Office at the respective college at the beginning of each semester.

4 METHOD OF INSTRUCTION: A lecture format is used with PowerPoint slides, videos and handouts will supplement the material where needed. A more practical and basic format of explanation will be employed so that the student will be able to obtain a basic understanding of how information is utilized in the oil and gas industry. Students are encouraged to ask questions and will be expected to participate in class. It is important to read the assignments and come prepared to participate. If you miss a class you will be responsible to getting the information missed. CLASS POLICIES: Academic Honesty: Attendance and Withdrawal Policies: All HCC rules, policies, and regulations apply as they are described in the HCC Student Handbook. All students are required to be present during class sessions. Students must communicate with the faculty in cases they need to be absent from a class period. Withdrawal policies apply as they are described in the HCC policy, rules, and regulations. All students must consult the HCC Student Handbook and College Catalogue regarding withdrawal policies. 4

5 Course Requirements and Grading Policy: All students are required to be on time for lectures and highly encouraged and challenged to participate during lectures in the course. Letter Grade A Test/Project Score % B % C % D % F 0-59 % Testing & Projects: Make- UP Policy: Each test given, whether a pop quiz or unit exam will have a score of 100 points and will be assigned a grade based on the student s score as indicated above. Students are advised to attend each and every examination on time so as to afford themselves ample time for completion. All Exams not pop quizzes- shall count for 60% of the Student s grade. Team and Individual Projects shall count for 30% of the Student s grade. Quizzes shall count for 10% of the Student s grade. Exam questions will come directly from the team projects, quizzes and lectures. No make- up quizzes, projects or tests will be allowed. Student Survey: Evaluation for Greater Learning Student Survey System 5

6 At Houston Community College, professors believe that thoughtful student feedback is necessary to improve teaching and learning. During a designated time, you will be asked to answer a short online survey of research- based questions related to instruction. The anonymous results of the survey will be made available to your professor and division chair for continual improvement of instruction. Look for the survey as part of the Houston Community College Student System online near the end of the term. Projects, Assignments Portfolios, Service Learning Internships, etc. A minimum of three (individual) Projects (100 Points each) will be assigned during this semester. Team projects are assigned at least once a month. 6
