Drilling Optimization - RILS

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

It is recommended to cover maximum four hours per day.       

This course will train drilling engineers in the benchmarking, identification, application, and implementation of drilling optimization techniques.  These techniques will cover both offset and historical well data, as well as real-time drilling data.  The intention of this class will be to give participants in this course knowledge to apply well optimization techniques in well engineering, drilling fluid engineering and well construction engineering.
