Dynamic Pressure Drilling - RILS

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

Each module is 2 hrs, recommended to cover maximum two (2) modules per day.            

This 5 day course is designed to help drilling engineering professionals understand the emerging technologies under the umbrella term of Dynamic Pressure Drilling (DPD). DPD refers to a group of technologies that relies on manipulation of downhole pressure via means other than mud weight alone to achieve wellbore objectives. DPD technologies include, Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD), Underbalanced Drilling (UBD), (Pressurized) Mud Cap Drilling, Dual Gradient Drilling (DGD), Air Drilling, Foam Drilling and Continuous Circulation.
