Certificate in Oil and Gas Well Technology (Level 3)

Oil and Gas Well Technology (City and Guilds – Level 3 Certificate)

This series will help learners achieve a broad understanding of the operational techniques of oilwell drilling, drilling calculations, completion and wireline well-servicing. It includes the function and construction of a representative selection of tools and equipment used in the drilling of oil and gas wells; the completion and wireline well-servicing of oil and gas wells; while providing guidance and practice on the calculations required during drilling operations.

The course/series consists of 3 modules:

• Oilwell Drilling Technology
• Drilling Calculations
• Oilwell Production Technology – (Well Completions)

These stand-alone modules will enable an individual to select those learning materials that suit his or her own particular requirements. Modules can be studied at the candidates own pace and can be studied in any order but the order is as numbered. The study time needed will vary from one module to another, and from one individual to another. It is likely to be in the range 40 – 60 hours for each module.

Each module will consist of four Workbooks, and a “Guide to Open Learning”.

No commitment to enrolling for the complete Oil and Gas Well Technology Series is required at any time although each candidate must register for each module. Modules are non-transferrable and can only be assigned to one candidate.

Each module (detailed above) may be assessed by examination and an individual certificate endorsed by City and Guilds of London Institute awarded to successful candidates.

Each exam which is passed successfully will contribute to one Certificate of Unit Credit towards The Certificate in Oil and Gas Well Technology. The Certificate will be awarded after all 3 Certificates of Unit Credit have been accumulated.
