Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes real-life case studies and exercises where participants will be engaged in a series of interactive small groups and class workshops. This course is designed to provide participants with a detailed and up-to-date overview of directional, horizontal and multilateral drilling. It covers the horizontal and multilateral well technology; the horizontal and multilateral well design and the applications for directional drilling; the directional profiles and extended reach wells; the directional measurement, surveying, survey calculations and accuracy; the dogleg severity calculations and planning directional and horizontal wells; the horizontal drilling methods and applications; and kicking off the well, drilling the tangent section, dropping hole angle, logging high angle wells and hole cleaning. During this interactive course, participants will learn the well control in horizontal wells and multi-laterals; the various types of survey instruments and the tools used to deflect a wellbore; the torque and drag calculations; the drilling fluids, turbodrills and measurement while drilling (MWD); the formation evaluation, kick detection and response; the general considerations for BOP equipment, cementing and drilling problems in horizontal and multilateral wells; the control over borehole trajectory and tools used to deflect a wellbore; freeing stuck pipe, bakingoff the drill string, fishing and milling; the sidetracking and lost circulation; the productivity of horizontal and multilateral wells; and the influence of well eccentricity and formation damage. link to course overview PDF
