Discipline: Well Construction/Drilling
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): James Bobo, Ken Talbot
|Drilling and service personnel struggle daily with the oil and gas industry's inexperienced labor force. This inexperience at the wellsite results in excessive non-productive time, trouble time, and invisible lost time. These, in turn, lead to unsafe incidents and excessive costs to the operator, the contractor, and the service industry. This course teaches participants to apply organizational learning processes, wellsite technical limits analysis, and more efficient use of all resources at the wellsite. Participants will learn how to identify and mitigate hidden risks that often are overlooked during the planning, design, and execution phases of a drilling operation; and how to dissect and analyze an operational plan. In addition, applying operational innovations and advanced motion and time processes will lead to improved efficiency of wellsite rotary operations and individual wellsite tasks. Participants will be introduced to models, templates, techniques, and real case studies that can be used on the job. This course brings together a documented planning and design process, maximizes drilling efficiency, and transfers the execution plan to the wellsite for implementation.|
Operations managers, drilling managers, drilling superintendents, drilling supervisors, wellsite drilling engineers, rig managers, rig superintendents, contract drilling engineers.
You Will Learn:
MR. JAMES E. BOBO retired from ConocoPhillips as a Principle Drilling Engineer. Mr. Bobo has served in various management and project leadership roles in drilling, production, gas processing, and gas gathering and information systems throughout the basins in the lower 48 states. In addition, he has served in key facilitator roles for well control operations in Papua New Guinea, Nova Scotia and high-pressure/high-temperature operations throughout the lower 48 states. Bobo is actively involved in society-level efforts related to continuing education, licensure, and professional development, along with the technical advisory boards for several universities. He earned his BS degree in petroleum engineering from the University of Tulsa.
MR. KENNETH J. TALBOT has over 45 years of well construction experience, inclusive of 10 years of training wellsite supervisors in well control, HPHT, and drilling and completion practices. Accomplishments include working in over 11 different countries on remote deepwater, jack-up, barge, platform, desert, and arctic rigs. This experience includes a 65 well HPHT Tuscaloosa Trend program (1979-85), and Amoco's initial exploration and appraisal wells in Norway, Venezuela, and Angola. He received a BS in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Southwestern Louisiana in 1975, has written and presented several SPE/IADC technical articles, and is a patent holder for the depth orientation marker.
