Course description

Describes occurrences, preventive measures and remedial actions for common downhole drilling problems. Addresses considerations involved in drilling abnormal pressures, working in sour gas environments and planning fishing operations. Discusses procedures for optimizing bit hydraulics, bit weight and rotary speed to attain minimum cost drilling. Emphasizes importance of the mud system in meeting well objectives.


This course serves as an introduction to Drilling Managers and Superintendents, Drilling Engineers as well Intervention, Completion and Production Engineers, Reservoir and Geology Engineers, Field Maintenance Supervisors and Operators, Service Companies and Equipment Manufacturing Engineers.
