Principles of Directional and Horizontal Drilling
This course first establishes the rationale for directional and horizontal drilling and provides common directional drilling scenarios. Discussions and activities enhance attendees’ understanding of how well path designs and drillstring configurations contribute to the ultimate success of production. Attendees will become fluent in the primary calculations that directional drillers use in the field, and learn how bottom-hole assembly selection affects directional drilling performance. Attendees are also exposed to techniques for reservoir navigation and extended reach drilling.
Starting from $4,500.00 per person
This course will be delivered virtually by a Baker Hughes instructor. Registered attendees will be given access to e-training material required to attend the sessions.
