This 3-day Drillstring Failure Prevention course aims to give participants an understanding of the principles, methodologies, practicalities, and risks associated with drillstring tubulars. This includes the design, inspection, ordering and usage of tubulars and how the components interact with each other.

The course provides participants with a better understanding of the stresses that will act on tubulars during their lifecycle. Using this understanding, they will then learn to recognise which items are appropriate for the well and which are compatible with each other.
