    Oil & gas drilling operations

    Drilling, the term itself in oil industry indicates the technology to construct circular wells with highly complex operations and sophisticated engineering. Drilling operation has to be done in rig site to drill the hole in safe, smooth and cost effective manner.

    Drilling process consists of overcoming the resistance of the rock, removing the crushed rock particles simultaneously with crushing down fresh formation, maintaining the stability of the well-bore and to prevent the formation fluids from entering the hole.

    The fundamental part of the drilling process is the planning phase of a well in which correct technical choices are made to construct the well in the most efficient way. Planning starts from gathering all data from geological, geophysical surveys conducted. Other data such as geological profiles, well logs, pressure reports, drilling reports, drilling fluid reports, cementing reports from offset wells if available is also used to develop a drilling program.

    This course is designed for petroleum engineering and geosciences students who wish to pursue a career in the oil and gas industry. It will provide a complete overview of how the rig site and drilling operations works and technologies used to get the objective. This will enable students to get ready for challenging yet rewarding breakthrough to the Industry as drilling engineer.
