Well Design & Engineering (DRI45)

  • 15-19 September 20245 daysDoha, QatarCourse Fee: 5350 USD
    Computer Fee: 350 USD


This course will expose participants to terminology, concepts, processes and equipment used to drill oil and gas wells.  The planning process followed by drilling operation is simplified so that participants will understand the process and be able to initiate a well plan. By understanding basic problems encountered when drilling a well, the participants will then recognise the duties of a drilling engineer.

Course Level: Foundation
Instructor: Gonzalo Rivero
