3-Day Horizontal and Extended Reach Drilling Operational Training Course

This comprehensive design and implementation course is targeted at Experienced Drilling and Completion Engineers, Drilling Superintendents and Drilling Managers.

This is an operationally based course focused on what needs to be done at the rig site during the execution of these types of wells.  This course briefly defines the key operational risks and then covers best practices to mitigate these risks for successful operations.

The 3-day courses are custom-designed and targeted at the operational decision makers: Drilling Supervisor and Toolpusher, however, the course content covers topics that are applicable to everyone from the Shaker-hand to the Operations Superintendent.  K&M has found that inviting the entire rig crew and, especially, the service company personnel to these courses proves to be invaluable when it comes to implementing the practices in the field.
