4-Day Stuck Pipe Prevention Course

4-Day Stuck Pipe Prevention Course

This is an operationally based course focused on Stuck Pipe Prevention (“SPP”).  The course explains stuck pipe mechanisms and the key fundamentals to these mechanisms.  The course then covers operational best practices for both prevention and corrective practices based on K&M’s extensive field experiences.

The 4-day courses are custom-designed and targeted at the Company-man and Toolpusher, however, the course content covers topics that are applicable to everyone from the Shaker-hand to the Operations Superintendent.  We have found that inviting the entire rig crew and, especially, the service company personnel to the course proves to be invaluable when it comes to implementing the practices in the field.
