Advanced Drilling Technology presents drilling personnel with the comprehensive knowledge of drilling operations needed to become effective supervisors.
Tthe program covers all aspects of well planning, drill string design, hydraulic optimization and down-hole concepts. Participants will be provided with both theoretical and practical applications using advanced simulation technology.
ADT is the second part of a two-part series in drilling technology. Participants are required to complete Practical Drilling Technology, along with the supervisory level of Well Control.
