Course Objectives

This training course describes the situations where horizontal wells are most likely to succeed, & provides an overview of the direction techniques, which have developed into horizontal practices. Also, the program suggests methods of evaluating & completing horizontal wells once they are drilled, & define the selection criteria required for the successful drilling of horizontal wells.
