About this course

This course has been designed specifically to help those involved in High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) operations to prepare for drilling a HPHT well. The course is delivered in a classroom setting and provides an understanding of operational requirements for HPHT wells, providing delegates with essential knowledge and procedures which they can take back to their workplace.

The course is ideally followed up with our rig-based training and coaching services, which involves on-site mentoring in implementing drills, fingerprinting, pit management, etc.
