Integrated Well Planning

A well planning course that covers various elements of well design, planning and construction complementing to the critical path of the well delivery process. Focus is to understand various design attributes from conceptual to detailed well design and to integrate these attributes into optimized well construction and delivery while keeping risks to ALARP.
