FUNDAMENTALS OF DRILLING

1 day

  • Drilling and casing program: function of the different casings, how to determine the drilling and casing program.
  • Principle of drilling: different types of bits, drilling string, hoisting and pumping functions and material, mud and solid treatments, wellheads.
  • Drilling methods and special operations: drilling parameters, turbo drilling, coring and logging, casing and cementing operations, directional drilling, well control, fishing jobs.
  • Offshore drilling operations: different types of rigs, specific offshore problems.

FUNDAMENTALS OF COMPLETION OF NORMALLY FLOWING WELLS

1 day

  • Operations involved in well completion.
  • Main factors influencing a completion design.
  • Connecting the pay-zone to the borehole: open hole and cased hole, drilling and casing of the pay zone, evaluating and restoring the cement job, perforating.
  • Equipment of naturally flowing wells: functions to be carried out and corresponding pieces of equipment, technology and handling of the main pieces of equipment (production wellhead, tubing, packer, downhole services, subsurface safety valve).

WELL PRODUCTIVITY - NEED FOR ARTIFICIAL LIFT

0.25 day
