Horizontal & Extended Reach Courses
Horizontal drilling can offer significant benefits over vertical wells, like increasing drainage area and connecting virgin fractures, but the technique is much more complex. If you’re considering a directional project, Signa can shorten the learning curve for your personnel. Signa’s ERD training course takes you through the entire directional process, giving you a detailed understanding of ERD philosophy and techniques. Topics include: torque and drag (to determine if your rig equipment can get you to TD), top drive and drawworks requirements, hole cleaning, stuck pipe prevention, eliminating packoffs, reducing buckling, tripping pipe, getting casing to bottom, preventing excessive overpull on the drillpipe, minimizing backreaming, and how a straighter well path can mean fewer turns, reduced drill time, and reduction of dogleg severity.
