Course Overview

Oil and gas industry has a wide range of upstream activities. One of the most important parts of the upstream industry is drilling. Drilling is complex and a complicated operation that involves complex methodologies, processes, and equipment/tools to extract black gold beneath the surface of the earth. Drilling is a multi-disciplinary method with complicated integrated operations either onshore or offshore.

Drilling has one of the most advanced technology and has diversified and ever-evolving challenges in the oil and gas upstream sector. Drilling uses different types of well profile and cutting-edge technology to explore oil and gas which were impossible to drill in the past. In order to excel in drilling methods and processes, this course is designed specifically to give necessary knowledge around multiple methods involved in drilling, the process to carry out drilling operations, and the tools used to explore the unconventional reservoirs. Drilling has the potential to accommodate multi-disciplinary teams and it can lead them to enter the world of new opportunities.

ZOE has designed this course to empower engineers and learners from different fields to learn diversified drilling methodologies, processes, techniques, technology, tools, and engineered principles. This course is designed to cover all aspects of drilling methodologies, processes, and tools used in the oil and gas upstream industry either onshore or offshore.

Course Objectives

The primary objective of this Drilling Technology, Tools, Methods, and Process Course is to empower professionals and engineers with:

  • Complete knowledge and information about all activities involved in drilling operations either onshore or offshore
