Cont. Ed: Horizontal Drilling Workshop - Fundraising Workshop for Student Scholarships

The one-day Horizontal Drilling workshop covers most of the basic/advanced engineering and concepts. This course provides a systematic, phased approach of the use of fundamental engineering principles, tubular mechanics and challenges associated in drilling these wells. The target audience should be interested to learn/refresh engineering principles so that they can be more equipped to consult as well as solve complex problems effectively and confidently. Upon completion of this course, attendees will have deeper knowledge of the basic principles used in day to day exercise and will be able to use the knowledge gained in a more improved way. This course will have practical hands-on class exercises to solve complex problems in practical terms through DSWE software accessed through the cloud.
