Introduction to Drilling Engineering (DRI20)

    Description

    This course builds a firm foundation of the principles and practices of well drilling engineering. It offers a comprehensive overview of past and actual well drilling concepts, supported through schematics and animations, as well as a complete overview of drilling rigs and their classification, various hardware options and drilling fluids selections.
    You will be taken on a journey from drilling process at the well bottom to well construction and equipment, altogether leading you to understand how and why you need to drill a well.

    Course Level: Foundation
    Instructor: Catalin Teodoriu
