Dubai, UAE
From Date: 02-Jan-2023   
To Date: 06-Jan-2023

Drilling is essential and expensive part of the oil and gas industry.

Improving the drilling operation carries the greatest interest by the oil and gas operating companies.

The oil and gas drilling industry is changing rapidly in the areas of technology, safety, environment, management, contractual relationships training, drilling operations must confront solve extremely difficult technical, safety and control problems. This course is designed to provide participants with an up-to-date overview of the practical applications of oil and gas drilling techniques. The course covers drilling programming well control planning. Type of drilling (deviated, horizontal and multilateral) drill bit selection and hydraulics, drilling fluid program, casing and cement operations for HP, HT well control operations, drilling problems& solving, well completion operations at HP, HT.


Upon successful completion of the course participants will be able to:

  • Review drilling data and plan the well from spud to production phase.
  • Well design and optimize drilling &work over schedule 
  • Incorporate the completion plans into the drilling plan at HP, HT
  • Drill a well cost effectively and maximize penetration rate.
  • Evaluate stuck pipe problem and avoid potential problems
  • Evaluate and maintain drilling fluids at HP, HT
  • Optimize hole cleaning
  • Design casing, drill string and BOP/Wellheads at HP, HT
  • Evaluate and implement cementing programs
  • Design and implement bit and hydraulics programs.
  • Incorporate directional drilling and deviation control
  • Recognize and design &evaluate well control problems
