Applied Drillstring Mechanics for Drilling Engineers
September 1 8:00 AM - September 2 5:00 PM CDT$2,250.00
COURSE DESCRIPTION: The course provides a comprehensive treatment of drill string design, practices with theoretical underpinnings. Various operational loads and limits discussed will provide more comprehensive view of the drillstring mechanics. It also covers advanced drilling engineering, enabling participants to understand the drillstring integrity under various operating load conditions. The class also covers the BHA design concepts, drillahead and drillstring dynamics. Participants will be provided on the realtime time monitoring and optimization and predictive conditions when the well is drilled. Upon completion of this course, participants will not only have deeper knowledge of the basic engineering principles used in the drillstring design but also have confidence to use them efficiently for consulting as well as solving complex problems effectively.

REGISTRATION should be made at least one month before the start of a course. It is recommended that participants register early due to limited seating. However, we will accept paid registrations up to the last business day before the class, provided there are seats available. Registrants will receive a confirmation email within 48 hours of registration and will receive complete venue information two weeks prior to the first day of class.
As a reminder: your seat in a course is not confirmed until payment is received.
