Course Duration:

One week

Who Should Attend:

This practical seminar is directed at exploration, engineering and drilling personnel concerned with drilling, well engineering, completion, reservoir management, and workover and rig formen. They should all benefit from attending this course.


To enable engineers to select completion equipment and design a completion string for all types of wells. To understand tubing movement.
