Today's drilling personnel must have a working
knowledge of all the required disciplines in order to effectively drill a well.
The course provides all the fundamentals necessary to drill a well whether it
is a shallow well or a complex, high pressure well.
The training course is also designed for
engineers and field personnel involved in the planning and implementation of
drilling programs. The course covers all aspects of drilling technology,
emphasizing both theory and practical application.
Computer programs are used to design many
aspects of the modern well and the course will provide the participants with
the theory behind most programs along with practical implementation. The course
will also include advanced Mud Logging principles and operations.
This Galaxy Oil & Gas trainings course builds a firm foundation in
the principles and practices of drilling and well planning, drilling fluid,
drill string design, hydraulic optimization and drilling hole problems.
Participants will learn the components of drilling string and how to use each
in optimum ways, how to evaluate the WOB and select the proper size of drill
collar. Participants will also be able to apply the practical solution for
analyzing the performance of drill string design for both vertical and
What are the Goals?
By the end of this training course,
participants will be able to:
a well cost effectively and maximize penetration rate & Evaluate
stuck pipe problems and avoid potential problems by optimizing hole
cleaning and ROP
drill string and BOP/wellheads & Design and implement bit and
design for proper deviation, directional and horizontal drilling control
& Recognize and evaluate well control problems by effectively using
Mud Logging principles and techniques

How will this Training Course be Presented?
This training course will utilise a variety of
proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension
and retention of the information presented. The daily workshops will be highly
interactive and participative.
The organization will gain, in sending their
employees to attend this particular training course, the following:
in the cost of the well and avoiding the risk
the well life and control it
the well integrity
integrating knowledge to mitigate and eliminate the drilling problems
their knowledge and get the self-confidence for doing the proper well
control, in addition, how to predict and analyzing all the warning signs
to eliminate all kinds of problems
