Objectives:

This is the most intensive course in our portfolio and is intended for those who want to learn , succeed and be the best.

This course has been attended by  every major oil  company in the  North Sea, Middle East and  many oil and service companies from around the world. The repeat running of this course and the many excellent reviews indicate that this course is one of the best technical courses available in the petroleum industry.

Audience:- This course is suitable for Drilling Engineers, Drilling Supervisors, and Toolpushers.

The participant should have a basic understanding of the oil industry and should have a University or equivalent education.


Learning Outcome:
