Get Started

We’re going to start by setting up the pad and rigging up the derrick and drilling systems. We’ll talk about how all the parts of the systems work, and why operators use the equipment they do today. Once we get the systems set up, we’ll take a look at some of the planning that goes into selecting the proper drilling mud and casing to safely drill and isolate a well.

This lesson is also included in the Petroleum Engineering & Technology Full Course.
