This course will provide all of the tools necessary to geo-steer horizontal wells accurately and efficiently. Real time drilling data, evaluation and selection of down-hole tools as well as communication are all incorporated in the geo-steering practices presented in this course.
Course Level: Foundation / Skill Instructor: Frank Seidel
Designed for you, if you are...
A geologist or engineer responsible for geo-steering
How we build your confidence
We will walk you through the Geo-Steering process from start to finish, touching on history, pre-drilling, drilling/operation, and Td/post ops. We will cover industry best practices, problems encountered as well as the benefits and limitations of the programs and technologies utilised in the Geo-Steering process.
