Do you want learn how to improve drilling performance?
Do you want to try “state of the art” drill string optimisation software? 

Ridge AS is pleased to announce that one of our technical collaboration partners DrillScan are planning to hold a short but intense master class in our Forus office. DrillScan are an independent company that offer unique business solutions for improving drilling performance through software development, well engineering services and laboratory based research & development.

The objective of the class is to reinforce your knowledge in Drillstring Mechanics and Directional Drilling by using advanced technologies and real case studies. Most sessions strongly rely on the use of DrillScan’s proprietary Software. Attendees are required to bring their laptop. Each participant will have the possibility to use DrillScan Software after the training (full 30-day trial)! The course will be held in English.
