E-423 - Data Acquisition during Drilling Operations

  • Young engineers and supervisors, toolpushers with some experience in drilling
  • To provide a thorough, practical knowledge of openhole logging, mud logging and fishing while drilling
Learning Objectives
  • To understand, assess and interpret measurements made while drilling
  • To learn about techniques and equipment used for coring during drilling operations
  • To understand how to prevent kicks and drilling problems with mud logging data analysis
  • To understand wireline and LWD technology with regard to log data analysis
  • To appreciate the geoscientists’ work in a quick-look log analysis at the rig site
Ways and means
  • Application to a real case (project) for the participants in the “Drilling and Completion Engineering” training course (E-412)
Training plan for 5 days scheduled in 4 days for public holidays
