E-419 - Fundamentals of Drilling & Completion

5 days FOR/BACFPE
Level
Foundation
Audience
  • Young engineers involved in drilling and completion, supervisors, tool pushers.
Purpose
  • This course provides 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
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • explain the fundamentals of drilling techniques,
  • describe the basic notions about hydrostatic and hydrodynamic,
  • carry out well pressure calculations,
  • assess uncertainties with regard to pressure measured while drilling,
  • explain the reaction of gaseous with regard of gaseous influx encountered while drilling.
Prerequisite
  • No prerequisites for this course.
Ways and means
  • Application to a real case (project) for the participants in the “Drilling and Completion Engineering” training course (E-412C).
