Drilling covers the fundamental concepts associated with synthetic and naturally occurring pressures that can impact a well during the drilling phase for surface and subsea wells. This course also explains the most common well control methods, as well as the causes, detection, and theory of kicks. Specific procedures and crew assignments for critical operations such as well shut-in and killsheet preparations are discussed as it relates to individual rigs. Simulators are utilized to provide hands-on practice of critical rig equipment such as blowout preventers, and to demonstrate constant bottomhole pressure methods for maintaining well control.
