About book : Resources of Oil & Gas constitute vital energy sector for the economic growth of any country. Thus pursuit of studies on oil and Gas exploration and production has assumed greater significance globally. In this context many educational and academic institutions have adopted full time Graduate/Post-Graduate courses in Petroleum Engineering & Technology leading to B.Tech./B.E. Degrees. The present Text book “A Beginner's Guide to Drilling Technology: Oil & Gas Wells Drilling and Completions” is designed for the benefit of students pursuing the Degree Courses in various Institutions. The present Book is a first in series of multiple domains of Oil & Gas industry which will be followed up with other disciplines of Oil & Gas Technology at a later date. This book penned by Dr. V K Rao and P K Sahoo, would serve as a ready reckoner to understand the Drilling and well completion activities describing the functionalities with a number of illustrations. Dr. Rao has more than four decades of Oil & Gas upstream experience having worked in senior positions in ONGC, DGH, and Reliance among many other Companies. Mr. Sahoo has diverse industry experiences both in core sector and knowledge industry including global oil and gas market research, market intelligence and consulting firm, oil and gas engineering service, and heavy engineering industry.
