Why Choose this Training Course?

This training course will increase the participants’ understanding of the operations carried out by directional drillers and how directional and horizontal wells are planned and optimized. The basic applications and techniques for multilateral wells will be covered and participants will receive instructions on planning and evaluating horizontal wells based on the objectives of the horizontal well, and how to perform the proper planning for directional and horizontal well. In addition, this PetroKnowledge training course will cover how to predict wellbore path based on historical data and determine the requirements to hit the target, and help solve related problems.

This training course will feature:
