What will you Learn in Drilling Courses?

The process of drilling includes identification of oil reserves as well as extracting them from various mining sites and rigs. Even though the process is highly technical, project management essentials are also covered in these training courses. Common concepts covered in drilling courses include petroleum geology basics, geological structures, petroleum reservoirs, circulation system studies, blowout preventers functioning, mud pits drilling, mud pits drilling instruments structure and processing, mud points, diamond bits, oil reservoirs analysis, oil cementry, cementry essentials, drilling operations, directional drilling, preventer drills, computerized automation and drilling mud composition properties.

Drilling Systems Used in the Oil and Gas Industry

Multinational oil corporations used varied technologies for drilling. Some of these are mentioned below:

  • Thermal intervention: this drilling technology has been used by many companies for extracting heavy oils from underneath. For implementing this drilling technology for oil extraction, factories need to deploy solar fields.
  • Chemical EOR: this is one of the most common drilling technologies used by corporations worldwide which make use of alkaline compounds for extracting oil by injecting methods.

Over the years, companies have come up with advanced drilling techniques for the extraction of natural gas, petroleum, oil and other minerals, which are horizontal drilling (uses vertical wells for extraction), multilateral drilling (reaches more depths than usual drilling methods), complex path drilling (it has the ability to extract multiple accumulations from single well location) and extended reach drilling. Drilling courses are available specializing in each of these methods.

Common Formats for Drilling Courses

Different specializations in oil drilling courses are available and well suited for different levels of learners ranging from beginner, intermediate to advanced. Drilling courses can include a number of different topics including:

  • Prevention of stuck pipes
  • Drill string designing
  • Drilling project management essentials
  • Oil and gas properties and management
  • Basic drilling technology
  • Drilling equipment essentials
  • Safety measures at the sites

These drilling courses are usually offered in the form of classroom courses. However, some are available online for the benefit of the busy working professionals. Online courses in drilling give professionals the flexibility to attend classes and assessments at any time including the convenience of revisiting course materials. Drilling certifications include graduate certificates, postgraduate diplomas. Professionals sometimes register for continuing education units in drilling specializations in order to upgrade their licenses.

Drilling Technology Training

Most professional training courses in drilling prepare professionals for field jobs and handling drilling equipment. Candidates are prepared with fundamentals and procedures of drilling processes which include training in engineering essentials, basics in site safety measures and project management credentials. Basic science concepts behind the mechanics of the drilling equipment are also discussed. Some important concepts covered in drilling technology training include circulation, bore dynamics, well control and drill bits.

Professionals with qualifications in drilling technology and mechanics can have wide range of career options ranging from project quality managers to mechanical engineers, quality assurance professionals and drilling technicians.

Professional training courses in drilling technology are beneficial for professionals seeking jobs in oil and gas industry, petroleum sites, offshore gas industry who have an eye for detail and engineering basics.
