special drilling operations

The Self-Study Program is designed to teach key terms and concepts that are relevant to rig personnel and drilling crews. Topics include well patterns, directional surveys, downhole complications, open-hole fishing, well kicks, and blowout prevention techniques.

When you purchase this program, you receive Special Drilling Operations, 2nd ed. (in print or e-book) and an online assessment that can be taken as an open-book test at your own pace.  If you already own a copy of the book you can purchase the assessment separately.  The assessment is made up of 250 questions and takes approximately 6 hours to complete after reading the book. If a passing score of 70% is not achieved, you may retake the assessment at no additional cost. Successful completion earns a Completion Certificate from The University of Texas at Austin–PETEX and 3.0 CEUs.

For multiple licenses or to use the material in training, please contact us at 800.687.4132 or 512.471.5940 or by sending an email to info@petex.utexas.edu.
