E-419 - Fundamentals of Drilling & Completion

5 days FOR/BACFPE
Level
Foundation
Audience
  • Young engineers involved in drilling and completion, supervisors, tool pushers
Purpose
  • To provide an overview of fundamental knowledge in drilling and completion (with a review of formations and well pressure) as an introduction to the intensive training program “Drilling and Completion Engineering”
Learning Objectives
  • To explain the fundamentals of drilling techniques
  • To describe the basic notions about hydrostatic and hydrodynamic
  • To carry out well pressure calculations
  • To assess uncertainties with regard to pressure measured while drilling
  • Explain the reaction of gaseous with regard of gaseous influx encountered while drilling
Ways and means
  • Application to a real case (project) for the participants in the “Drilling and Completion Engineering” training course (E-412)
