Directional, Horizontal and Multilateral Drilling (DRI08)

  • To be announced for 2018

Description

This course builds a firm foundation in the principles and practices of directional drilling, calculations, and planning for directional and horizontal wells. Specific problems associated with directional/horizontal drilling such as torque, drag, hole cleaning, logging and drill string component design are included.

Course Level: Intermediate
Instructor: Catalin Teodoriu

Designed for you, if you are...

  • A drilling, production or operations engineer, field supervisor, toolpusher, manager or technical support person

How we build your confidence

You will receive instruction on planning and evaluating deviated and horizontal wells and learn how to perform simple calculations associated with well survey. The basic applications and techniques for multi-lateral wells are also covered in the course.
A strong focus will be on the tools and techniques used in directional drilling such as survey instruments, bottomhole assemblies, motors, steerable motors and steerable rotary systems.
As an independent course, it offers the most complete overview of geo-steering tools.

The benefits from attending

By the end of the course you will feel confident to:

  • Make survey calculations
  • Interpret TVD, polar and rectangular coordinates and vertical section
  • Interpret dogleg severity and the problems associated with dogleg severity
  • Plan a two-dimensional directional well
  • Plan horizontal wells based on the objectives of the well
  • Determine the best multi-lateral completion for an application
  • Determine declination and non-magnetic drilling collar selection
  • Apply the best survey instrument for the job
  • Directionally drill with rotary BHAs, jetting, whipstocks, motor, steerable motors, and rotary steerable systems
  • Understand the principles of various rotary steerable systems and their selection
  • Interpret torque and drag and determine what factors will affect them
  • Determine cementing requirements for directional wells
  • Predict wellbore path based on historical data and determine the requirements to hit the target
