5 days FOR/FDTDHE
Level
Proficiency
Audience
  • Drilling engineers, supervisors, tool pushers.
Purpose
  • This course provides a comprehensive knowledge to prepare efficiently and succeed in drilling a directional well.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • learn about the equipment needed for directional drilling,
  • design a directional well,
  • calculate the trajectory of a deviated well in 2D,
  • design the drill stem, with regard to a well's profile, in order to reach a target.
Prerequisite
  • Course E-420 “Well Architecture and Equipment”, or equivalent practical experience, is highly recommended.
Ways and means
  • Exercises.
  • Application to a real case (project) for participants in the “Drilling and Completion Engineering” training course (E-412C).
Observation
* Public holidays: the course schedule will be adapted to cover all content.
