    Introduction to Offshore Drilling and Completions Operations

    Learning Objectives:

    • The attendants will get familiar with offshore operations, offshore rigs, mooring operations and dynamic positioning operations, Remote Operating Vehicles (ROV).
    • Will get familiar with equipment and operations for drilling, completions and well testing in Jackup rigs, including wellheads, conductor, mud line suspension, corrosion caps installation, topsides and jacket installations and tiebacks.
    • Will get familiar with equipment and operations for drilling, completions and well testing in floater rigs, including subsea wellheads, subsea BOPs, LMRP, Risers, diverter operations in floaters, etc. 
    • Safety and environmental considerations in offshore operations.
