Rig Awareness and Familiarization

Participants in this course will be given the chance to learn about rig related activities in the oil industry.  The five main themes that participants will discover include petroleum reservoirs, rig types, rig equipment, direction drilling and horizontal wells, and well completion.  The petroleum reservoirs theme will provide attendees with a unique opportunity to learn about the various phases of the life of a reservoir.  The topic of rig types will show participants the different types of rigs used on land and offshore, as well as rig safety and rig personnel functions.  The directional drilling and horizontal wells theme will cover Measurement While Drilling (MWD) equipment, along with methods used to drill horizontal wells and multi-lateral wells.  The fifth and last topic of well completion will cover casings, tubing, cementing, and perforations. 

Interactive practical training combined with classroom sessions and workshops tours will enhance the participants’ understandings of the various rigsite operation topics.  At the end of each day participants will take part in question and answer sessions, which will enhance and reaffirm what was learned that day.  Attendees will have the opportunity to participant in daily visits to training rigs, cementing units, wireline units, artificial lift units, a well testing well and workshop, a MWD and LWD workshop, a coiled tubing training rig, and a completions workshop.  Each of these visits will give participants a better understanding of various operational processes employed in drilling operations.

    Kuala Lumpur

    Kuala Lumpur is the capital and largest city of Malaysia.

    Beginning in the 1990s, the city has played host to many international sporting, political and cultural events including the 1998 Commonwealth Games and the Formula One World Championship. In addition, Kuala Lumpur is home to the tallest twin buildings in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers.

    Protected by the Titiwangsa Mountains in the east and Indonesia's Sumatra Island in the west, Kuala Lumpur has a tropical rainforest climate which is warm and sunny, along with abundant rainfall, especially during the northeast monsoon season from October to March.

    The major tourist destinations in Kuala Lumpur include the Dataran Merdeka (the Independence Square), the House of Parliament, the Istana Budaya, the Istana Negara (National Palace), the Kuala Lumpur Tower, the Muzium Negara (National Museum), the Putra World Trade Centre, the Tugu Negara (National Monument) and mosques such as the Masjid Jamek, the Masjid Negara (National Mosque) and the Federal Territory Mosque.
