Principles and Practices of Mud Motor
INSTRUCTOR: Robello Samuel, PhD
COURSE LENGTH (DAYS): 1
AVAILABILITY: Public & In-House
ATTEND AN UPCOMING CLASS:
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Drilling engineers, well operations personnel, rig supervisors, drilling supervisors mud motor designers and manufacturers who would like to gain greater understanding of mud motor design and their applications in drilling.
COURSE DESCRIPTION: This is a unique and focused training on positive displacement motor commonly called mud motor. Positive displacement motor commonly called Mud motor, a simple but elegant machine that has become an integral part of the BHA specially when drilling shale wells. Even though tremendous advancements have been made but the challenges remain. The one-day training on mud motors covers the concepts, performance, advancements, future designs and how to use and when to use at difficult times. The workshop covers additional talks from industry technology leaders and is targeted for engineers, mud motor experts and manufacturers. The training price includes Positive Displacement Motor: Theory and Applications textbook (400 pages, color) authored by Dr. Robello Samuel.
