link to preview

The third in a series of three drilling technology books, Special Drilling Operations, 2nd ed., explores the calculations and procedures that are specific to controlled directional drilling, fishing, and blowout prevention. Aimed at industry personnel and petroleum technology students, topics include well patterns, directional surveying, survey tools, and deviated-hole complications. This book also examines the retrieval of lost and stuck equipment in open holes, well kicks, and rig installations that prevent blowouts from occurring.

This book is a revision of the original edition, which has remained a popular training staple among oil and gas industry participants worldwide for decades. While the basics of drilling are retained, a number of changes have been incorporated to reflect how the industry has evolved. The new edition is vibrant and illustrative, making this a highly useful manual for employees. It can be used standalone or paired with segments 1 and 2 of the Drilling Technology Series (available separately or as a bundle). Newly updated and colorfully illustrated with special reader features, a glossary, and an index.

2015, 256 pp. ISBN 978-0-88698-271-3.
