Upskill offer for out-of-work drillers

Although the oil price has stabilised and the market is showing signs of recovery, this is still a difficult time for many in the oil and gas industry. However, at Merlin ERD, the belief is that the glass is always “half full” and that those in the industry who can, should assist others in their ‘family’.    We are making a number of places available at a nominal cost on our next training course for those drilling professionals who have been out of work for three months or more.  This offer not only allows a positive use of time, but also the opportunity to upskill and network by gaining this specialist training.

The course will run in Aberdeen from 30 January to 01 February and is taught by the engineering experts behind some of the most challenging wells in the world.  The material covers everything from well planning to hole cleaning and includes the critical success factors to drill trouble-free high angle, extended reach and complex wells. This 3-day course is aimed at those who already have drilling experience whether engineers, drilling supervisors, superintendents or service personnel.

If you are, or know of, someone who would be interested in this opportunity, please contact Pam Conway, Training Manager at  , call +44 1738 627 022 or visit

T&C: This offer only applies to the Aberdeen course 30 Jan to 01 Feb.  Places are limited and at the discretion of Merlin ERD Limited
