Course Information

Stuck pipe is one of the most expensive problems (NPT) that can occur during a drilling operation.  Prevention of stuck pipe is far more economical than even the best freeing procedures. When prevention fails, a drilling professional should be able to select the most efficient remediation. Understanding and anticipating drilling problems, their causes, and planning solutions are essential.

To illustrate the extent of stuck pipe problems and to equip all members of the Drilling Team with the skills and knowledge to recognise the signs of a potential Stuck Pipe situation.  To identify and specify actions to be taken by the drilling team to avoid this costly and time-consuming problem.  To develop a team approach to prevention and resolution of stuck pipe problems.

This course is designed for comprehensive coverage of stuck pipe problems and resolutions.  Anyone with an interest in the subject should attend.
