Why Choose this Training Course?

Small and large operators are looking at alternate management systems to drill, complete and repair wells. This training course looks beyond the conventional internal model and presents other approaches that employ External Project Management (EPM) teams and Integrated Services (IS) to improve the overall value.

To conduct well construction and large-scale down hole rejuvenation projects, an Operator must employ a technical engineering team and many specialized products and services. The traditional approach has been to retain internal resources that design the program and select individual suppliers to execute the work. In many circumstances, this may not be possible or does not yield the best results.

Understanding these concepts and identifying where they add value is important to improving wellbore construction efficiency. Knowing the general steps to put these methods in place will allow Operator personnel to select and support the best EPM and IS approach for the application. External suppliers will learn how to participate successfully in offering and providing support to these alternate approaches.

This External Project Management & Integrated Services Approach to Well Construction training course prepares the participants to effectively develop, administer and participate in externally-managed well construction projects.
