Each day's sessions will be of 4 hrs per day.
Directional drilling technology is being pushed further with increasingly complex well paths, distant targets, and more difficult drilling environments. This technology is the heart of many unconventional resource plays. It is only with a full appreciation of the scope and limitation of directional techniques will drilling teams achieve success and avoid costly and time consuming mistakes. As existing fields mature and the complexity of new field development increases, the directional driller is no longer alone in determining the wellbore trajectory. An increasingly multidisciplinary team is now involved in each and every well design and placement decision.
By the end of the course the participants should be able to apply the correct surveying techniques and directional placement methods to ensure the safe and accurate placement of complex and ERD wells, whilst making informed choices about the BHA design and selection of steering technology. Participants will learn different methods to deflect and steer wells to the target. Well placement calculations will be covered and attendees will learn to appreciate the importance of collision avoidance and learn the methods used to evaluate these risks. Hole cleaning problems and solutions will be addressed to ensure the participants appreciate the impact that this can have on the success of the well construction process. Several examples and exercises will be worked throughout the course.
