Deepwater Drilling and Well Control

Instructor
Dr. Jerome J. Schubert has nearly 25 years’ experience in the petroleum industry, mostly as a drilling engineer. He specializes in well control training and methods, deep water drilling, underbalanced drilling and managed pressure drilling. Dr. Schubert has extensive industry experience with Pennzoil Company and Enron Oil and Gas, as well as in academia at the U. of Houston-Victoria’s Petroleum Training Institute, and the past nine years at Texas A&M U. Dr. Schubert’s teaching duties include foundations of engineering, drilling and production systems, drilling engineering, and advanced drilling engineering at the undergraduate level. His graduate courses include special topics in underbalanced drilling, drilling engineering, and advanced well control. Dr. Schubert has also taught industry courses in well control, drilling technology, well control, underbalanced drilling, dualgradient drilling, extended-reach/multilateral drilling, well completion and workover technology, and quicklook log interpretation. Dr. Schubert is both a registered professional engineer and a certified public accountant in Texas.

Course Description
This course provides an overall view of deepwater drilling and well control. The goal of the course is to give the audience a basic knowledge of deepwater drilling operations. It will cover the deepwater drilling rigs and structures, station keeping, well equipment, fluids, casing design, cementing, deepwater hazards, and well control.
