Integrated Geological Well Planning and Operations
The aim of this course is to practically demonstrate how wells are planned and executed taking into consideration the inputs of various discipline. This integrated approach will be facilitated across discipline understanding and responsibilities of each team member. At the end of this course, participants will be exposed to hands on steps in planning and executing different well objectives. Delegates will also understand the methodology and techniques used in generating geological and formation pressure prognosis for exploration, appraisal and development wells.

Who Should Attend
This short course is intended for members of multidisciplinary asset teams including geoscientists, reservoir petroleum and drilling engineers. Asset teams comprise of multidisciplinary team members all working together to achieve a common objective. To accomplish this, they must not only understand each other’s technical discipline, but should also contribute to each other’s efforts and support the business for cost effective planning and operation. Consequently, different aspects of geological well planning such as geological prognosis, formation pressure prediction, wellbore stability and trajectory planning will be discussed. Well site and petrophysical methods will be utilized in an integrated method that highlights the role and relevance of various disciplines to achieve well objective.
