Course Description:
This 2-day seminar provides an introduction to drill bits, directional drilling and formation evaluation fundamentals. Day 1 will focus on drill bits and directional drilling fundamentals, including a tour of Baker Hughes’ state-of-the-art drill bits manufacturing facility in the Woodlands. Discussions will include technologies and applications of drill bits and directional drilling.

Day 2 will focus on formation evaluation fundamentals centered about key reservoir characteristics. Methods of data acquisition will be discussed with primary focus and LWD and Wireline methods. Several examples will be used o demonstrate gamma ray, resistivity, bulk density, neutron porosity acoustics and magnetic resonance logging principles. The session will end with a demonstration of hydrocarbon saturation estimation.

Topics include

  • Directional drilling applications
  • Well planning
  • Directional drilling control methods
  • Automated & rotary steerable systems
  • Key reservoir characteristics
  • Methods of well logging
  • Well logging principles: gamma ray, resistivity, density, neutron, acoustics and magnetic resonance
