drilling fluids ( advanced )

Course Purposes

The course covers all aspects of drilling fluids technology, emphasizing both theory and practical application. Hands-on laboratory exercises are included in the course and provides the fundamentals necessary to drill a well, whether it is a shallow well or a complex, high pressure well.

Course Objectives:

By the end of this course the participant will be able to know how to
  •   Use clays and polymers to achieve desired mud properties
  •   Apply water chemistry to the treatment of drilling fluids
  •   Perform complete API water-based mud and non-aqueous drilling fluids tests
  •   Evaluate the information on an API water-based and non-aqueous drilling fluid report
  •   Identify drilling fluid contaminants and prescribe corrective treatments
  •   Select water phase salinity and activity for bore hole stability
  •   Select non-aqueous fluids to meet drilling requirements and environmental concerns
  •   Manage non-aqueous drilling fluid systems
  •   Minimize formation damage to optimize well producibility
