Bop Maintenance and Operations

 

Duration:

 

t.b.c.

Aim:  

Providing useful and practical training for Bop Maintenance personnel in order to increase their knowledge on the theory, design, construction, assembly and maintenance of well control systems and disciplines which, on the students return to the worksite, should result in improved maintenance procedures, accurate and rapid troubleshooting, thereby reducing the rigs downtime and operating costs while improving overall safety, operating efficiency and reliability of the drilling unit and its associated systems.

Intended For:  

Drill Crews, Bop Mechanics, Rig Mechanics, Maintenance Personnel, Graduate Engineers with little or no field experience.
