Drilling Fluids - (Remote Instructor-Led Series)

This is a Remote Instructor Led Series training, all training sessions will be delivered online with no face-to-face classroom attendance.                                                                            

Each day's sessions will be of maximum 4 hrs per day.

This course will take participants through a comprehensive look at the functions of drilling fluids.  It will address how to engineer a mud system, as well as cover water based, oil based, and synthetic mud systems.

The course material for each class can be customized to the client’s specifications and requirements, as well as be extended into a two week course.  A lab visit can also be arranged depending on location and availability.
