Drilling Engineering Overview shall present the audience with the knowledge and arts of drilling wells, especially in Malaysia. It shall be presented in a way that is comprehensible to the engineers who are with or without the oil and gas background. The objectives of the seminar are to provide exposure to audiences on drilling practices and issues as well as to assert the audience with an appreciation of a Drilling Engineer’s work scope.

Drilling discipline in the oil and gas industry tends to be seen as the hard-core engineering and operations in the hostile environment that many potential engineers try to shy away from. This one-day seminar shall try to answer some of the questions that many people have, such as how is the drilling done, what is it like to be a drilling engineer? The design process explanation shall take you from the Conceptual Design, Detailed Design and Final Design stages. Some highlights of the course are designing the well trajectory, directional design, casing design, drilling fluids formulation, cementing formulation, perforation, securing and completing the well to ensure that the production reaches the surface safely.
