Overview: Covers the behaviour of drilling fluids. This includes the reasons why drilling fluid density and viscosity are controlled, discussion of the various drilling fluid hydraulic models, flow regimes and how these affect the well, pressure distribution in the circulating system, interpretation of drilling fluid pressure behaviour and hole cleaning.
Duration: Two days.
Suitable for: Anyone dealing with drilling activities and is particularly useful to geologists whose data may be affected by the behaviour of the well.
2019 classroom-based courses: 5-6 February, 7-8 May, 13-14 August and 12-13 November (Aberdeen).
