Drilling Engineering Overview shall provide the audience the knowledge and principles 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 course are to provide exposure to the audiences on drilling practices and issues as well as to assert an appreciation for 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 avoid tapping into. This one-day overview course shall try to answer some of the questions that many people have, such as how is the drilling operations conducted, what is it like to be a drilling engineer and those jargons – what are they talking about? 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 production (oil & gas) reaches the surface safely.  This course has been offered by IEM annually since 2008.
