OBJECTIVES FOR ATTENDEES

After attending this training, the engineer will be able to:

  • Describe the main components used in directional drilling bottom-hole assemblies (BHA)
  • Understand how to model BHA behavior and rock interaction to predict directional performance
  • Determine the impact of drilling parameters on drilling performance, to understand risks and anticipate potential problems
  • Perform local dog leg analysis to enable trajectory re-construction and tortuosity assessment to assure successful casing/liner/completion deployment
  • Explain the theoretical background to torque and drag modelling
  • Understand causes and consequences for performance of sinusoidal and helical buckling in the drill string
  • Anticipate potential lock-up situations and optimize landing string design
  • Understand the mechanical limits while running in hole in complex wells
  • Predict the degree of casing wear generated by drilling operations
  • Identify how casing centralization can be improved to ensure proper cementation without compromising the ability to reach total depth
  • Perform advanced simulations using the WellScan software

Each participant will have the possibility to use DrillScan Software during 15 days after the training.

TARGET AUDIENCE

This course is designed for drilling and completion engineers (supervisors and managers as well) with 3 – 10 years’ practical experience of well design and drilling/completion operations.
The course will be held in English and the participants will be required to bring a lap top computer.
