Why Attend This Training Course?
Though a horizontal well is more costly, it can reach subsurface objectives that could not easily be reached with a vertical borehole. Today, most wells drilled are deviated or horizontal. Note that a horizontal well is deviated, but a deviated well may not be horizontal.

What Is The Training Course Methodology?
This training course methodology depends on enabling participants to interact and exchange experiences, explore their competencies and achieve their career aspirations, using forward-thinking training arts, such as theoretical lectures and/or open discussion to exchange opinions and experiences, scenarios, innovative thinking brainstorming. Participants will receive an agenda including training material as a reference, in addition to some extra notes and booklets. 

Who Should Attend This Training Course?
This course targets senior engineers & technologists, including some hands on field exposure & will allow them a better understanding of the engineering & operational needs to select & successfully drill a horizontal well.

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