Training Calendar


This course examines the difficulties, challenges and problems facing today’s Deepwater Drilling / Testing / Completion Programme Managers where wells are being drilled in increasingly difficult downhole and environmental conditions with ever increasing cost and legislation further contributing to design and operational pressures.

Furthermore, today’s current low oil price environment adds further pressure to ensure that Deepwater wells are drilled, tested and completed on time and on budget.

Through offering potential and proven solutions to the problems facing today’s deepwater personnel, delegates will be able to maximise drilling safety, efficiency and hydrocarbon production whilst, at the same time, minimising cost and risk on these highly expensive and potentially very difficult wells.

Case histories referencing both successes and failures are referred to throughout the course to maximise the learning / experience transfer process and delegates will have the opportunity to both critique and examine recent deepwater well failures and successes drilled in different parts of the world.

Duration: 5 Days
