Subsurface EnvironmentContains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
This topic addresses the fundamental and general conditions of the subsurface environment. The nature of water, pressure, geothermal gradient and fluid dynamics is discussed and its implications on oil and gas generation. Also presented is the effects of overpressure and under pressured environments as it relates to drilling and production.
Cementing 2Contains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: determine the volume, displacement and density requirements for cementing a casing string, select the cement additives appropriate to a given job, specify the casing accessories to be use on a primary cement job, outline the steps involved in cementing a string of casing, evaluate the results of a primary or squeeze cementing operation, and calculate the volumes and displacements required to set a cement plug.
Drilling OperationsContains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: optimize drilling performance through careful monitoring and analysis of well parameters, select bottomhole assembly configurations for various hole intervals and operating conditions, oversee routine cementing operations in shallow hole intervals, diagnose a stuck pipe incident and outline fishing procedures, and monitor drilling parameters for indications of abnormal pore pressure and take the appropriate initial actions in response to a potential kick situation. This webinar is categorized under the Drilling discipline.
Drilling and Workover FluidsContains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to evaluate the features, benefits and limitations of various mud systems and additives, and select the one most appropriate for a given well, as well as specify controls on fluid properties in order to optimize drilling and workover operations.
Rock and Fluid Sampling Analysis
Core AnalysisContains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
Presents a comprehensive review of core analysis procedures and equipment, including sample preparation, routine core analysis, special core analysis (SCAL), core description, core photographs as well as complementary core information.
