Preface to Petroleum Drilling Technology PDF


After some years of experiences in university and industry, the author realizes the need for a precise and concise guide book for drilling engineers and university students. This book covers the most important aspects of petroleum drilling technology.

Chapter 1 introduces the components of rotary drilling system and top drive system.

Chapter 2 discusses properties of drilling fluid and flow of drilling mud. Chapter 3 presents casing design method.

Chapter 4 talks about the deviation tools and trajectory design for directional drilling.

Chapter 5 introduces the mud hydraulics concepts and optimization process.

Chapter 6 introduces underbalanced drilling method, followed by cementing and perforating operations in Chapter 7.

Chapter 8 discusses the common problems encountered during drilling operations.

Finally, Chapter 9 presents basic properties of oil, gas and rock.

After reading this book, the readers gain valuable knowledge in modern drilling technology in the most concise and straightforward manner, without struggling through tedious and excessive descriptions.

A few illustrative examples are included to make theories easy to understand. This book serves as a textbook for students studying petroleum engineering, as well as a reference book for engineers in drilling industry.

The Author is grateful for the financial support from Shandong province government through the prestigious Taishan Scholar program.

Dongying city government also provided financial support through Yellow River Delta Scholar program.
