T455 - Slim Hole Drilling and Completion Technology
COURSE TITLE: SLIM-HOLE DRILLING AND COMPLETION TECHNOLOGY
Slim-hole technology is a fast-developing technology used in all major oil and gas production countries of the world. The course is designed to give the participants an in-depth overview of slim-hole applications and to equip participants with the practical knowledge to undertake operations related to the technology immediately upon returning to the job.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Operations, Production, Drilling and Well Completion Engineers, Production Geologists, Drilling supervisors, Technical Managers, Drilling Contractor and Service Personnel
BENEFITS OF THE COURSE
At the end of this course, the participants will be able to do the following:
Understand in-depth overview of slim-hole drilling and completion
Write drilling and completion programs for a slim-hole project
Perform pre- and post-job analysis
Effectively take part and perform day-to-day operations related to slim-hole operations.
COURSE DURATION: 5 DAYS
Introduction to Slim-Hole Technology
Considerations for slim-hole technology: exploration and exploitation drilling, harsh environments (less environmental footprint)
Planning a slim-hole drilling project: rig selection, etc.
Essential materials for slim-hole operations: rig types, drilling string assembly, downhole motors, wellhead, bit types, coiled tubing, tubulars
Drilling of slim-holes: penetration rate, drilling mud, hydraulics, logging and formation testing of slim-holes, well control, cementing of slim-holes, deviation and directional control.
Major problems associated with slim-hole drilling: well control, drilling fluid selection, bit selection, and drilling fluid waste management.
Completion of slim-holes: cementing and tubing configurations.
