This course is designed to provide participants with basic understanding of activities that relate to the drilling and
completion of oil and gas wells. The course covers the entire drilling engineering process from the well planning phase
to rig site operations. Insight is also provided into drilling problems and reasons for well intervention after the well is put
on production. This course will equip you, whether in a managerial or supporting role, to contribute signicantly
towards ensuring that well project delivery targets are met, within the approved Authorization For Expenditure (AFE)
and with minimal Non Productive Time (NPT).
Drilling and service personnel struggle daily with the oil and gas industry's inexperienced labour force. This inexperience at the wellsite results in excessive non-productive time, trouble time, and invisible lost time. These, in turn, lead to unsafe incidents and excessive costs to the operator, the contractor, and the service industry. This course teaches participants to apply organizational learning processes, wellsite technical limits analysis, and more efcient use of all resources at the wellsite. Participants will learn how to identify and mitigate hidden risks that often are overlooked during the planning, design, and execution phases of a drilling operation; and how to dissect and analyze an operational plan. In addition, applying operational innovations and advanced motion and time processes will lead to improved efciency of wellsite rotary operations and individual wellsite tasks. Participants will be introduced to models, templates, techniques, and real case studies that can be used on the job. This course brings together a documented planning and design process, maximizes drilling efciency, and transfers the execution plan to the wellsite for implementation.
