Introduction

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

The training seminar is also designed for engineers and field personnel involved in the planning and implementation of drilling programs. The training seminar 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 training seminar will provide the participants with the theory behind most programs along with practical implementation. The training seminar will also include advanced Mud Logging principles and operations.

This seminar 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.

Objectives

By the end of this training seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Drill a well cost effectively and maximize penetration rate &  Evaluate stuck pipe problems and avoid potential problems by optimizing hole cleaning and ROP
  • Design, drill string and BOP/wellheads & Design and implement bit and hydraulics programs
  • BHA design for proper deviation, directional and horizontal drilling control & Recognize and evaluate well control problems by effectively using Mud Logging principles and techniques

Training Methodology

This training seminar will utilise a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. The daily workshops will be highly interactive and participative.

Organisational Impact

The organisation will gain, in sending their employees to attend this particular training seminar, the following:

  • Reduction in the cost of the well and avoiding the risk
  • Extending the well life and control it
  • Ensuring the well integrity

Personal Impact

  • Obtain integrating knowledge to mitigate and eliminate the drilling problems
  • Hone their knowledge and get the self-confidence for doing the proper well control, in addition, how to predict and analyzing all the warning signs to eliminate all kinds of problems.

Who Should Attend?

This training seminar is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Drilling engineers
  • Well site supervisors
  • Drilling contractors
  • Drilling supervisors
  • Trainee drillers
  • Rig engineers
