This course will provides an overview of well construction processes, as well as an introduction to subsea drilling operations. It will acquaint students with the major well design technologies. It will take participants through all aspects of the technical activities related to delivering a well plan within cost.

Focus will be on helping students understand conceptual design issues using actual engineering design calculations. Participants will be fully equipped with an understanding of the basics of well design and control, from spudding a well to drilling and completion.

It will also incorporates discussions on elementary rock mechanics and simplified methods of borehole stability analysis.
