Fundamentals of Drilling & Completion

DRIL/BACFPE

Who should attend?

  • This course covers an overview of fundamental knowledge in drilling and completion, and the various pressure in the well. It also provides the fundamentals knowledges in order to follow the intensive training program “Drilling & Completion Engineering” (page 154).
Audience :
  • Young engineers involved in drilling and completion, supervisors and tool pushers.

Level : Foundation
