The objective of this five-day drilling technology course is to equip drilling personnel with an in-depth knowledge of drilling operations as well as the associated tools and technology needed to become effective supervisors.
The program provides participants with both the theoretical and practical aspects behind well design and planning and provides knowledge of specialized drilling operations tasks and down- hole concepts.
This is part 1 of a two-course series in drilling technology. PDT and ADT courses are both taken out of the ten-day ODT course.
