Advanced Oil & Gas Drilling and Completion Technologies -Horizontal Directional Drilling
Advanced Oil & Gas Drilling and Completion Technologies Training Course is an online training course offered through B.F. Environmental Consultants Inc. The course covers horizontal direction drilling, multilateral drilling, and MWD Technology.
A few of the technologies used today that have made drilling less costly with a higher success rate and at the same time reducing environmental impacts include the following:
Horizontal and directional drilling
Polycrystalline Diamond Compact (PDC) drill bits
Synthetic drilling muds
In this course, the student will review the sections and fact sheets covering drilling and completions from the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Fossil Energy's publication "Environmental Benefits of Advanced Oil and Gas Exploration and Production". This course is most relevant to engineers wishing to attain knowledge on several of the advanced technologies used today in oil and gas drilling and well completion.
The student must take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty (20) questions at the end of the course to obtain PDH credits.
