Drilling Engineering - CPD Only

The aim of this 5-day course is to understand the concepts and techniques used in drilling engineering. This includes how to; examine the design requirements of well planning and construction and optimise the design of a drilling program.

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.

The assumed background for CPD course participants would be a relevant engineering degree or a relevant science discipline, such as geology, physics, chemistry or mathematics with industry experience. Past students from non-petroluem backgrounds, have encountered difficulties in understanding well engineering processes. Participants who are confident they understand the processes can adapt calculations with any background in sciences or engineering.

CPD participants will receive a certificate of attendance on completion of the full 5-day course.

Venue: University of Queensland, Saint Lucia Campus, 11th - 15th September 2017.
