Singapore, Singapore, 2011/02/03 - Deepwater Well Engineering Training, 21 – 25 March 2011, Kuala Lumpur - Dr. Michael Gibson, Aberdeen Drilling Schools International - PetroEdgeAsia.net.
This 5 day training course examines the difficulties, challenges facing today’s deepwater drilling programme designers and personnel where wells are being drilled in increasingly difficult downhole and environmental conditions. Ever increasing cost and legislation further contribute to design and operational pressures.
From this training course, you will have access to potential proven solutions to the problems facing today’s deepwater personnel, you will be able to maximise drilling safety, efficiency and hydrocarbon production whilst, at the same time, minimising cost and risk on these highly expensive and potentially very difficult wells.
Case histories referencing both successes and failures are referred to throughout the course to maximise the learning experience and knowledge transfer process. You will have the opportunity to both critique and examine recent deepwater well failures and successes drilled in different parts of the world to complete, through teamwork study, the knowledge-gain process. By attending this 5 day comprehensive training course, you will have access to the following:
- Modular course design takes personnel with existing offshore experience into the deepwater arena;
- Training includes examples, videos, calculations and teamwork exercises;
- Provides the know-how to design and drill difficult deepwater wells with semi-submersible rigs and drillships safely, economically and optimally;
- Emphasis on a combination of theory, practice, planning and operations;
- Promotes aware of the risks – and mitigations – involved;
- Actual case histories worldwide will be covered (through the referencing of Industry / SPE papers);
- Participants become familiar with the risks, dangers and remarkable successes which can be attributed to deepwater wells with both semi-submersible rigs and drill ships (up to and including the latest generation of vessel);
- Course material combines text, diagrams, videos, graphics, schematics and shown examples.
Who Should Attend this Training Course
This deepwater well engineering course has been specifically written for drilling personnel who are involved either directly or indirectly with well engineering / well construction and for those personnel who have an interest in deepwater drilling engineering but who might be from another discipline – such as completion, testing or production – whether office or offshore based.
Personnel from operators, drilling contractors, service providers, equipment suppliers and regulatory agencies will benefit from this course where a mix of management, planning, engineering and offshore considerations are blended to cover the whole mix of considerations which constitute the deepwater well engineering process, culminating in deepwater drilling programme review through teamwork exercises.
This training course has a limited attendance of up to 20 participants only. Sessions commence at 9am on all days, with short intervals at 10.30am and 3.30pm respectively. Lunch will be provided at 12:30pm for 1 hour. Sessions will end at approximately 5pm on all days.
