Advanced Drilling Technologies

Advanced Reservoir Simulation Technologies - training course with HOT Engineering in Dubai and ViennaAdvanced Drilling Technologies - A 5-day Oil & Gas training course in Vienna

This 5-day advanced training course provides a comprehensive overview of the principles and practices of advanced drilling engineering, enabling participants to decide which technology is most appropriate for their business.

It is an introduction to advanced drilling topics such as High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) drilling, modern drilling technologies (i.e. casing drilling, unconventional drilling methods), special well design, drilling problems and their solutions. Advanced drilling techniques such as casing drilling or coiled tubing drilling are also covered as are tools and techniques used in casing or tubing drilling such as surface equipment, bottomhole assemblies (BHA), etc.

Participants be guided through planning and evaluating drillstring design and learn how to perform calculations associated with well tubular design and stuck pipe situations.
Non-conventional aspects of drilling will be also covered within this class, guiding you through shale gas drilling, gas hydrates drilling and coring as well as modern casing and coiled tubing drilling aspects.
At the end optimisation concepts will be presented, helping you to learn how to take decisions that could save time and increase the safety of drilling operations.

Suitability - Who should attend?

The training course is especially suitable for Engineers with a good understanding of the principles of drilling engineering. Drilling, production and operations engineers, field supervisors, managers and technical support personnel are the main target of the course.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

By the end of the course delegates will feel confident in their understanding of:

  • Drill string mechanics: loads, cause of failure, design concepts
  • Mechanised drilling operations: make-up of tubular, mechanised drilling rigs
  • Drilling problems: stuck pipe situations, fishing operations
  • Advanced drilling technologies - casing drilling, HPHT, coiled tubing drilling
  • Proper selection of drilling technology for shale gas, geothermal drilling, etc.
  • Non-conventional drilling methods and equipment including environmental aspects of drilling activities
  • Drilling through gas hydrates
