A Primer of Oilwell Drilling remains the go-to guide for rig personnel wishing to gain a better understanding of drilling operations and the oil and gas industry as a whole. Now readers can test their knowledge using an assessment tool aimed at reinforcing material from the book.

REQUIRED The Certificate Program is a self-study program designed to teach key terms and concepts that are essential to the oil and gas industry. Topics include cable-tool and rotary drilling, rig types and components, land and offshore drilling operations, well completion, and rig safety.
