Petrel Well Design

This Course is based on Petrel 2015.1 release

This course is designed specifically for SIS drilling support to learn the well planning fundamentals and Petrel drilling workflows.

There are four main topics: offset well analysis, well design; well positioning and real-time operation.

The attendee is guided through the preparation stage for data used in well design. This includes project setup, data import and preparation. You will learn how to import trajectory and targets from third-party applications, such as EDM.

You will undertake well design exercises integrated all the elements of the well planning, from making offset well analysis using drilling risks; defining geological targets; building drillable well paths to intercept geological targets; do trajectory uncertainty analysis, create driller’s targets; perform anti-collision analysis, modify the path to avoid collision with nearby wells; finally generate report and plotting.

After the planning phase, you will learn how real-time data acquisitions are handled in Petrel.

  • Location


    Doha, located on the Persian Gulf, is the capital city of the state of Qatar.


    Doha is home to a number of sports stadiums, many of which were renovated in preparation for the 15th Asian Games, held in December 2006. Doha also hosted the 3rd West Asian Games in December 2005. Doha is also expected to host the 2011 Asian Indoor Games; Doha will also host the finals for the 2011 AFC Asian Cup. Qatar is aiming to be the region's sports capital.

    Doha International Airport is Qatar's only international airport. It is the hub of Qatar Airways, and is served by many other international airlines.
