About the Course: Well engineers who are responsible for technically evaluating and authorizing programs for drilling or working over wells must have the required skills and competencies to safely design wells of varying nature. They also need to be able to confirm that well delivery and intervention programs generate intrinsic well control assurance. Such work programs must establish, verify, monitor and maintain suitable and sufficient barriers for the entire well lifecycle – from spud to abandonment. Well engineers must also be able to select a suitable drilling or workover rig, capable of safely performing the work within its operational envelope. Advance Well Engineering is basically based on pore pressure, kick tolerance, casing functions, casing design and cementing. It is sometimes related to drilling and petroleum engineering. A valid objective of the well-planning process is to minimize the cost of the well without jeopardizing the safety aspects.

This intensive 6-week program has been put together to cover Advanced Well Engineering topics. The program intends to uplift the knowledge and skills for Students and Professionals, who will directly involve in well designing. It will also benefit staff that are or will be working as a member of a day-to-day operations team.

It is delivered through presentation of a series of interactive lectures, videos and animations, case studies, simulated drilling scenarios and facilitated study group discussions supported by technical reviews. Underpinning the course is a team-based well design project.

Learning Objective:

  • Guidance under one world class best instructor
