Drilling Rig Inspection, Sizing and Selection Training Course

The course starts with a detailed description and specification of main rig systems and equipment used for drilling and work over operations and continues with the discussion of specific procedures and check lists implemented for conducting rig equipment inspection. Finalizing with a methodology used for rig sizing and selection.

This course is intended to develop skills to conduct Inspection and Acceptance Tests on drilling and work over rigs based on API, ANSI, ISO and IADC standards through the application of check lists and procedures to verify the working conditions and readiness of major rig systems and equipment.

This course is designed for Drilling Supervisors, Drilling Engineers, Drilling Team Leaders, Rig Managers, Tool Pushers, Drillers, Service Companies Specialists and Management personnel who will benefit from learning about the practical aspects of rig inspection, sizing and selection procedures.
