Drilling Rig Interactive

Welcome to the Drilling Rig Interactive created by the TOP Energy Training university consortium of The University of Texas at Austin, Penn State University and Colorado School of Mines. Together, we design and create online courses focusing on the fundamental technology, science, and engineering of oil and gas operations. Check out our entire catalog of online oil and gas training courses.

To the uninitiated, a drill site may seem chaotic and confusing, but through this interactive, you’ll come to understand the processes that go on at a drilling site and technologies that make drilling possible. Explore the Drilling Interactive with Dr. Paul Bommer, Distinguished Senior Lecturer at The University of Texas at Austin, to discover how everything works together to achieve the goal of drilling a stable, usable hole.
