Course Overview

The Oil and gas industry is one of the most diversified industries in the world. It’s a multi-disciplinary industry with complicated integrated operations onshore and offshore. What is meant by Directional Drilling? Directional drilling in oil and gas industry is a widely used technique in order to explore oil and gas reservoirs that are not possible to drill with conventional vertical drilling.

Directional drilling is one of the most advanced technology and has diversified challenges as well. Directional drilling uses different types of good profile and cutting-edge technology to explore oil and gas which are impossible to drill with vertical drilling. This course is designed to give the necessary knowledge of directional drilling to enter in the world of new opportunities.

ZOE has designed this course to empower young engineers and learners to learn diversified directional drilling techniques, technology, and engineered principles. This course is designed to cover all aspects of directional drilling used in oil and gas industry either onshore or offshore.
