ABOUT THE COURSE

The Underbalanced Drilling course will provide an overview of the current underbalanced drilling technology. The UBD techniques will be presented in a straightforward manner as well as a quick outlook on advantages and concerns. Participants will gain a thorough knowledge of underbalanced drilling operations. The course will also emphasize the relevant issues in the drilling industry, equipment used& field applications. Various components and procedures will be discussed in greater detailsincluding the IADC classification & liquid-gas system. The program will explain descriptions and dialogue about conveyance methods, injection methods, and pressure-control techniques. A discussion on hydraulics will help participants to understand more about the flow terminology & multiphase well hydraulics. The Fluids will also be analyzed during the sessions along with design goals and considerations. After completion of this course participants will gain the comprehensive & practical knowledge of the techniques used in Completing underbalanced-drilled wells.
