This course will expose participants to the terminology, concepts, processes, and equipment used to drill oil and gas wells. The planning process followed by drilling engineers will be covered to the extent that participants will understand the process and be able to initiate a well plan and well design. Non-complex calculations and basic problems will be included so that participants will see how this is done by the drilling engineer.
This course will serve to introduce the entry level drilling engineer to the profession. Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to identify rig components, make simple rig sizing calculations, as well as describe basic drilling fluids, drillbit selection concepts, directional drilling plans, and tools used in the drilling technology. Additionally, some cost estimating processes, fundamentals of well control, drilling tool selection, and the important standards used in the drilling industry will be covered.
Who should attend?
- This course is aimed at entry level drilling engineers.
- Having some exposure in the oilfield will be beneficial though not essential. Simple calculations will be performed during this course and participants will need to be able to operate a basic hand held calculator.
