This course addresses the root causes of poor planning and poor operational procedures that lead to stuck pipe situations at the rigsite. The approach to stuck pipe prevention advocated in this course is a ‘holistic’ one where the subject is addressed across disciplines at the planning, execution and evaluation stages of each project. The importance of maintaining focus on the key drivers of stuck pipe during each phase of well construction is highlighted as is the use of techniques and equipment previously only used by the geoscience teams. Whilst the course covers all the areas of potential stuck pipe in well construction operations, the delivery of it is focused on ensuring that the greatest impact can be delivered both in the planning stages and at the rigsite. The time weighting of each subject area and each stuck pipe mechanism is based on the industry stuck pipe statistics to ensure that the maximum value is delivered.
