Stuck Pipe Prevention -- Train Wreck Avoidance™ - SPP

The Stuck Pipe Prevention Train Wreck Avoidance workshop provides the most comprehensive coverage in the industry for understanding and preventing the underlying causes of Stuck Pipe, Wellbore Instability, Loss Circulation, and other sources of non-productive time (NPT) in drilling operations. The workshop also focuses on correct responses by individuals and teams, early warning signs, and minimizing the impact to drilling operations. Through world-class presentations, practical discussion, and the best reference and instructional materials available, participants hone their knowledge of basic drilling technology and how it relates to avoiding NPT.
