Introduction

This training seminar 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, the training seminar 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 seminar will feature:

  • How to identify candidate wells for horizontal drilling, design horizontal and multilateral well profiles
  • Understanding single and double build curve
  • Calculating torque and drag
  • Understanding kick off methods, compile a drilling and completion program and estimate wellbore stability mud weights

Objectives

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

  • Interpret TVD, polar, rectangular coordinates, dogleg severity and the problems associated with it
  • Interpret torque and drag and what factors affect those in the drilling process
  • Understand main concepts associated to well path planning
  • Recommend suitable measures to mitigate operational issues related to directional and horizontal drilling
  • Understand main concepts associated to well construction of multilateral wells

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:

  • Achieving the optimum design of well, and avoiding the risk
  • Extending the well life and control it
  • Ensuring the well integrity in all stages.

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 design, in addition, how 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 engineer
  • Completion engineers
  • Completion Supervisors
  • Drilling managers
  • Drilling technical support personnel
