Introduction to Well Engineering

26 - 29 July 2021

9:00AM - 1:00PM (UTC +8)


Limited for 12 participants.

From MYR2,300/pax

100% HRDF Claimable


This introduction course is designed to provide non-drilling professionals with an understanding of how wells are designed, the people and roles involved, equipment and services used in well engineering.


The objective of this Well Engineering course is to provide non drilling engineers with a practical insight into the well design process. Scheduled around an actual well and combined with practical examples we provide an overview into the well planning aspects that have to be considered.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the course, the delegate will understand of:

  • Objectives and creating a basis of design for each activity before working the details of their well program.
  • Complexities and interaction between various components of well design and the subsequent well operations.

Who Should Attend?

This course is intended for new as well as non-technical personnel associated and involved with well engineering operations. 


The course method will be a combination of the following;

    • Lectures (presentation)
    • Discussions and exercises
    • Real/field case and Demonstration

Broken down as follows;

    • 45% Lectures and videos
    • 20% Discussions
    • 35% Case Studies & Practical Exercises
