HXR offers Client Specific 2 and 3-Day Horizontal, Complex and ERD Well Drilling and Completion Training Courses, including the integration of Geomechanics Fundamentals.

What You Will Learn:
How to effectively design, plan and implement the drilling of Directional, Horizontal, Complex and ERD wells through a multi-disciplinary approach including the latest drilling and completion technologies and techniques as well as incorporating the latest Geomechanics techniques to help avoid costly well problem surprises.

  • T&D, Buckling and Hydraulics Fundamentals
  • Hole Cleaning
  • How to Model Capabilities of Existing Rig Equipment
  • What are Some Ways of Increasing the Capabilities of Rig Equipment
  • What Causes Hole Problems in Hi-Angle Wells
  • Key Design Points for ERD Wells
  • Tripping Procedures
  • BHA Design
  • Benefits of Rigsite “Hole Condition Monitoring”
  • Casing/Liner Operations, Including Floated and “Mud-Over-Air”
  • Recognizing and mitigating wellbore instability
  • Basic pore pressure prediction

This is a perfect training course for young drilling professionals, experienced drilling professionals and entire project drilling teams to ensure that everyone on the team has a fundamental working knowledge of how to drill and complete challenging horizontal and ERD wells.

Having this foundation not only enriches the individual team members, but also helps the company drill wells safer, further and faster…while reducing well costs by lowering NPT.
