STUCK PIPE PREVENTION COURSE OVERVIEW
With oil at such low prices, you cannot afford to get stuck on today’s wells, otherwise the budget is easy blown not just through having to fish but in many cases having to side-track, causing the well’s cost to over-run by $ millions, especially on very expensive (e.g. HPHT, Deepwater & ERD wells).
This course has been written for Operators, Drilling Contractors and Service personnel who require an in-depth detailed understanding of the causes of stuck pipe (which includes drill pipe, BHA’s, casing, liners and logging tools) and how sticking can be prevented.
As compared with other “more standard” Stuck Pipe Prevention courses, we spend more time studying the latest advances in downhole rock mechanics forces (including wellbore stability / instability with respect to mud weight, mud chemistry, hole angle and azimuth), the importance of optimised drilling fluids design, BHA design, optimised well design, optimised drilling practices, jar placement, jar calculations & jar firing, why problems magnify on high angle / ERD / horizontal wells and the importance of effective teamwork & communication. This course also shows the latest industry videos to further help delegates’ understanding of stuck pipe prevention.
Aim & Objective
RIGWORLD’S Stuck Pipe Prevention courses provide participants with the knowledge and understanding of the causes of stuck pipe and the means to reduce or eliminate stuck pipe as a significant cause of lost time incidents and related costs.
Stuck pipe is the primary cause of non-productive time and should not be considered as an inevitable drilling hazard. Our training develops an understanding of how stuck pipe prevention can be managed through the well design and construction process.
Who Should Attend
It is particularly applicable for Drilling Engineers, Senior Drilling Engineers, Drilling Superintendents, Drilling Managers, Assistant Drillers, Drillers, Toolpushers, Senior Toolpushers and Service Personnel.
Course Duration: 3 Days
- Classroom Training: 2 Days, 8 Hours Per day
- 3rd Day Assessment for certification
