Drilling Engineering - 5 Day Short Course (11-15 September, 2017)

Industry professionals now have the opportunity to attend a series of 5-day Petroleum Engineering intensive courses, on a continuing professional development basis. All particpants receive a certificate of attendance, that includes the number of completed learning hours (CPD Credits).

Professor Raymond Johnson Jr. (Professor of Well Engineering and Production technology, University of Queensland), will facilitate the Drilling Engineering 5-day short course, aims to provide attendees with an understanding of the concepts and techniques used in drilling engineering. The course will examine the design requirements of exploration and development well planning, and construction, and the use of offsetting well data to prepare future wells.

After completion of the course, attendees should have a greater appreciation of the drilling process, with confidence to critique and provide input into the design of a well drilling program, relative to their organisational roles.

This course will include discussion of:

  • Rotary Drilling Operations/Rig Systems
  • Pressure Determination/Geomechanics
  • Drilling Fluids
  • Cementing Design and Practices
  • Drilling Bits
  • Casing Design
  • The Drill String
  • Directional Drilling
  • Drilling Problems and Well Control.
