In this short course Sam Abraham will take you through his vast experience of drilling geothermal wells. Having worked in Kenya, Indonesia, New Zealand, Turkey, the US and in the Caribbean serving both the Oil Gas and Geothermal Industry, Sam comes with a wealth of knowledge and hands-on experience.
With the growing appetite of the Oil Gas Sector to learn more about the geothermal know-how and evaluate where to position the geothermal opportunities in their own assets, this course is a must attend for technical drilling, project management and subsurface professionals in the hydrocarbon industry.
The two-day training course will cover practical aspects of O&G and Geothermal technology differences in relation to sub surface, well design, drilling processes and operations. Additionally, it will also include the aspects of power production and direct use, project management, and much more.
The course will be helpful for professionals transitioning in the energy market to Geothermal from O&G especially in the current and future global scenario to sharpen your skills.
