Course General Description
Designed and provided by Petrogav International Oil & Gas Traning Center, this eBook is suitable for any one who wish to start their career in the oil and gas industry. This basic drilling technology course addresses the technology used to drill wells from a fundamental view point. Equipment and procedures involved with drilling oil and gas wells are described for those who are interested in understanding the drilling process regardless of academic background. During the first day, the overall drilling process is presented along with definitions and descriptions of drilling equipment. This provides the vocabulary to understand the drilling process.
During the remainder of the week, the various components and procedures are discussed in greater detail with explanations of the basic science concepts which guide these processes. Subjects include descriptions of drill bits, directional drilling, drilling fluids, solids control, cementing, casing, well bore stability, well control, measurement-while-drilling techniques, stuck pipe, lost circulation, and well bore hydraulics. Some technology enhancements are included to improve understanding of drilling operations for all participants, with or without a science background. After all various components and procedures are discussed, the information contained in morning reports is explained and used as a summary of the course content.
