Geothermal Drilling Technology

Geothermal Drilling Technology - Oil & Gas training courseGeothermal Drilling Technology In-House - A Basic to Intermediate Course for Oil & Gas Professionals

This in-house course provides a comprehensive understanding of the technology and engineering required to successfully design and execute geothermal wells. It covers basic drilling principles analysed from the point of view of a geothermal developer. The geothermal aspects of drilling processes and how they affect the well plan, well construction and overall budget are also presented.

The course is structured by presenting the basic drilling technology and then linking it with the features of geothermal drilling activities.
The course will cover the following drilling aspects:

  • Design and evaluation of well drilling systems
  • Identification and solution of drilling problems associated with geothermal wells
  • Mud design for elevated temperatures, well control, casing design
  • Well cementing

Some exercises (drilling costs calculation, casing loads) will be used to highlight the most important aspects of geothermal well construction.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This in-house geothermal drilling technology training programme is suitable for engineers with little or no background in drilling technology or petroleum science, as well as for geologists and any professionals involved in geothermal project planning and management.

This course requires a minimum knowledge of fundamental science.
