Modern Well Design and Downhole Drilling Physics (PET535)
The course covers planning of wells for drilling operations, as well as safety and optimization during the operations. This includes well integrity, borehole stability, unwanted events and optimization of the drilling process, while meeting environmental requirements. The course establishes the physical basis for the above-mentioned analyses, and includes rock mechanics, pipe mechanics and fluid mechanics/drilling hydraulics.
Course description for study year 2023-2024. Please note that changes may occur.
There must be an early dialogue between the course coordinator, the student representative and the students. The purpose is feedback from the students for changes and adjustments in the course for the current semester.In addition, a digital course evaluation must be carried out at least every three years. Its purpose is to gather the students experiences with the course.
