Course objectives and outcomes

The objectives of this course are to provide candidates with a basic competency in drilling and well operations. Candidates will be taken through the geological aspects of a well in to the complete sequence of exploration, development and production. The course provides rig types, rig equipment as well as the downhole aspects of drilling a well. Drilling challenges, well control and operational aspects are presented and the course ends with completions and workovers and provides a complete overview of the drilling process.

The outcomes of the course are that students will understand;

  • Geology, Reservoirs and Traps
  • Processes of exploring and developing a reservoir
  • Designing wells
  • Safety aspects of the drilling and well construction proces
  • Rig Types, Rig systems
  • Downhole drilling tools
