WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE SAID
“I have been wanting to attend Merlin ERD’s Extended Reach Drilling Engineering and Operations course for 7 years and as soon as the opportunity presented itself, I signed up. It hasn’t disappointed and I’ve been impressed with the knowledge, experience and enthusiasm of the presenters along with the depth of course material covered. I’m delighted to have finally attended after waiting so long!”
Marten Westink, Senior Drilling Engineer, ONE
“Merlin ERD’s Extended Reach Drilling Engineering and Operations course has been on my bucket list for a long time. The instructors clearly know everything ERD and that only comes from expert practical knowledge and experience of the topics we covered during the course.”
Peter Aird, Kingdom Drilling
Training is essential and is the best investment you will make – we’ve found that understanding is a critical success factor in delivering exceptional performance.
Merlin ERD Training will teach you the critical success factors relevant to any high angle well whilst highlighting the root cause of 80% of downhole problems and how to avoid them. These advanced ERD technologies can be incorporated into standard deviated wells.
Painful experience shows that even the most robust drilling programme can fail through incorrect implementation techniques. Due to the increased challenges and numerous procedural revisions associated with high angle wells, educating personnel on how to identify issues before they become problems is crucial in delivering a successful deviated well.
Our training can be tailored to include engineering modules, project specific risks, drill pipe management or stuck pipe response.
Merlin ERD has found that training key operations personnel in the latest practices is fundamental in delivering operations excellence.
Managing wellbore stability and losses
Variable drilling practices across assets
High turnover of personnel
Our team of highly experienced industry experts will share their knowledge and experience of delivering some of the world’s most challenging ERD and horizontal wells with you.
Operations courses normally last three days and are frequently combined with DWOP, pre-spud or team building events which capitalize on having the team together. Engineering modules covering advance design aspects in ERD can be added.
Course location should be away from the rig to provide the best environment, free of distractions and where practices and challenges can be discussed in detail with experienced personnel who may not have the experience of advanced deviated practices.
