Course description

Drilling Practices - DP

The two-week course is designed for engineers and field personnel involved in the planning and implementation of drilling programs. The seminar covers all aspects of drilling technology, emphasizing both theory and practical application. Drilling is a complex operation requiring the marriage of different technologies and disciplines. Today's drilling personnel must have a working knowledge of all these disciplines in order to effectively drill a well. The course provides all the fundamentals necessary to drill a well whether it is a shallow well or a complex, high pressure well. Computer programs are used to design many aspects of the modern well and the course will provide the participants with the theory behind most programs along with practical implementation. Participants are required to bring a scientific calculator. For in-house courses, the instructors of this course will accept examples from your company for analysis in the class as one of the demonstration exercises. Please contact PetroSkills Training for a list of the information and support data required, as well as the necessary lead-time.

Instructor has a very sound operational background. Was very effective at fusing both the theoretical/practical and operational concepts being taught - this made the learning process much easier for me.

Going through class problems after the theory was taught was very helpful for me to understand the concepts. The instructor was very good at adapting to everyone's' different learning styles and this was greatly appreciated.

For a fundamental level class, I think the timing was appropriate. Instructor fully understood the subject. I was able to tie in many real life examples and experiences. Thank you for your time and knowledge.
