About the course:

Oilwell Drilling introduces the techniques and technologies involved in drilling oil wells. The course is intended for personnel new to the oil and gas industry, specifically including those in the administrative and support services as well as those in the field. Oilwell Drilling provides a firm foundation knowledge of oilfield practices and terminology that can prove invaluable in every sector of the industry.

The Drilling Fundamentals details the processes and tools used to drill a well, as well as key concepts like kick detection, underbalance drilling, primary cementing and well control. Drilling wells is perhaps the most challenging and dangerous process in oil and gas exploration and production, and is the first step in exploration and production. Specialized procedures, tools and equipment are required during the process of bringing a well to completion, and knowledge of how these pieces work with each other and their specific role in the creation of a well is essential for efficient and safe drilling operations. Maintaining control of the well during drilling operations is crucial to the safety of crew members, and protection of the environment. The last step of drilling a well is completion, in which specialized casing and well is completion, in which specialized casing and cementing operations allow production of well fluids.

Learning objective:

Improving the wall-building property is an important requirement for drilling and completion fluid. It can stabilize the borehole wall, can prevent differential pressure sticking during drilling-in a reservoir with higher permeability, and also is necessary to protect the reservoir.

Duration: 15+ hours

Prerequisites: The main objectives are the acquisition of information and the safeguarding of production.
