Why Choose this Training Course?

Today's drilling personnel must have a working knowledge of all the required disciplines in order to effectively drill a well. The course provides all the fundamentals necessary to drill a well whether it is a shallow well or a complex, high pressure well.

The training course is also designed for engineers and field personnel involved in the planning and implementation of drilling programs. The course covers all aspects of drilling technology, emphasizing both theory and practical application.

Computer programs are used to design many aspects of the modern well and the course will provide the participants with the theory behind most programs along with practical implementation. The course will also include advanced Mud Logging principles and operations.

This PetroKnowledge training course builds a firm foundation in the principles and practices of drilling and well planning, drilling fluid, drill string design, hydraulic optimization and drilling hole problems. Participants will learn the components of drilling string and how to use each in optimum ways, how to evaluate the WOB and select the proper size of drill collar. Participants will also be able to apply the practical solution for analyzing the performance of drill string design for both vertical and direction holes.
