Drill String Design and Optimization - DSD
We have been presenting Drill String Design workshops for over 12 years for all types of operations around the world. We are constantly updating our materials to reflect the latest technology applications for both near-vertical and high-angle well designs while maintaining a thorough grounding in the fundamentals.
Workshop content is often customized to address customer-specific operational situations and software applications. Course tuition includes a copy of DS-1 Drill String Design Standard 4th Ed. Vol.2.
Who should attend?
Operator, drilling contractor, and service company engineers; drilling supervisors and superintendents. This is an intensive technical workshop. A calculator is required and a laptop is strongly recommended. Class size is typically limited to 18-20.
