This course is the third in a series of courses about drilling for hydrocarbons
As "easy oil" becomes scarcer, companies are broadening their search for oil and gas to more challenging locations. This course describes two types of specialized drilling: extreme drilling and offshore drilling. The three most common types of extreme drilling are Arctic drilling, high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) drilling, and helicopter-assisted drilling. Both extreme drilling and offshore drilling pose unique challenges that must be overcome.
Recommended prerequisites include:
- Energy 501: Drilling Basics
- Energy 502: Advanced Technology in Drilling
