Course Description

Introduction

This GLOMACS Directional, Horizontal and Sidetrack Drilling online training seminar will increase the participants’ understanding of the operations carried out by directional drillers and how directional and horizontal wells are planned and optimized. The basic applications and techniques for multilateral wells will be covered and participants will receive instructions on planning and evaluating horizontal wells based on the objectives of the horizontal well, and how to perform the proper planning for directional and horizontal well.

In addition, this online training seminar will cover how to predict wellbore path based on historical data and determine the requirements to hit the target, and help solve related problems.

This online training seminar will feature:

  • How to identify candidate wells for horizontal drilling, design horizontal and multilateral well profiles?
  • Understanding single and double build curve
  • Calculating torque and drag
  • Understanding kick off methods, compile a drilling and completion program and estimate wellbore stability mud weights

Objectives

By the end of this online training seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Interpret TVD, polar, rectangular coordinates, dogleg severity and the problems associated with it
  • Interpret torque and drag and what factors affect those in the drilling process
  • Understand main concepts associated to well path planning
  • Recommend suitable measures to mitigate operational issues related to directional and horizontal drilling
  • Understand main concepts associated to well construction of multilateral wells

Training Methodology

This online training course will utilize a variety of proven online learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, retention of the information presented. The training course is conducted Online via an Advanced Virtual Learning Platform in the comfort of any location of your choice.

Organisational Impact

The organisation will gain, in sending their employees to attend this particular online training seminar, the following:

  • Achieving the optimum design of well, and avoiding the risk
  • Extending the well life and control it
  • Ensuring the well integrity in all stages

Personal Impact

  • Obtain integrating knowledge to mitigate and eliminate the drilling problems
  • Hone their knowledge and get the self-confidence for doing the proper well design, in addition, how to eliminate all kinds of problems
