UL Lafayette Petroleum Engineering students recently attended the IADC Well Control conference in New Orleans.
UL Lafayette Petroleum Engineering students visited the Baker Hughes Drilling Services facility on September 8th. The tour covered drilling motors (PDM and RSS), MWD/LWD tools (density, neutron, sonic, resistivity, etc.), telemetry communication, reamers, QA/QC procedures, drill bits, etc.
After an education of downhole drilling tools during the week in the classroom, we proceeded to connect the dots from a classroom education to the real world of our industry.
