Introduction to Well Engineer (Coming Soon)
Ever since the first production in the 4th century AD, of brine and gas through bamboo-drilled wells in China, ultimately resulting in the first commercial oil wells in Canada and USA in the 19th century, people have been fascinated by the drilling industry. To be able to drill a hole in the ground, through known and unknown geology and all of this within a hostile environment of high pressures and temperatures, speaks to the imagination of many. To drill oil and gas wells successfully, the rigs we drill with have to be equipped with ‘state-of-the-art’ technology. The planning and execution phase has to be of a high standard too, not in the least to meet today’s stringent regulatory health, safety and environmental standards.
This course aims to familiarize attendees to the unique world in which we drill and complete a well. As a result, at the end of the course attendees will have a better understanding of all phases of drilling and well intervention operations and should be able to put this understanding to good use in their daily work activities.
The Course Contents:
The course ‘homes in’ on all key elements of Well Engineering, from the first geological indications that we ‘may’ find potential hydrocarbons, along the journey of drilling into the unknown, and topping it up with activities such as Completions and Well Intervention. In summary, the course includes:
The course is meant for staff, in- and outside the Well Engineering discipline, who are interested to enhance their knowledge of the drilling and completion/well intervention process. This may result in a better interface with disciplines they need to interact with in meetings or it may make them a more productive team member in a project. Support staff in particular, such as those in HR, Contract & Procurement, HSE, Finance, etc., would be our primary target and would also benefit most. Apart from the learning aspect, the course is also meant to be fun and highly interactive.
The course is delivered as a: 3-day event, classroom, using presentation slides, multi-media, reference material, well control simulator and quizzes to ensure the session is enjoyable and that knowledge is retained and/or further enhanced
