One Line Description
As the first and only complete guide for engineers on basic drilling engineering within the context of achieving sustainability in drilling operations, this book is a milestone for drilling, petroleum, and environmental engineers and researchers and a must-have volume for anyone working in the drilling community

Engineers and scientists in the petroleum industry, such as petroleum, drilling, and reservoir engineers, production engineers, geologists, and petrophysicists. Environmental engineers, process engineers, and drilling technicians

The book clearly explains the concepts of the drilling engineering and presents the existing knowledge ranging from the history of drilling technology to well completion. This textbook takes on the difficult issue of sustainability in drilling engineering and tries to present the engineering terminologies in a clear manner so that the new hire, as well as the veteran driller, will be able to understand the drilling concepts with minimum effort.

This textbook is an excellent resource for petroleum engineering students, drilling engineers, supervisors & managers, researchers and environmental engineers for planning every aspect of rig operations in the most sustainable, environmentally responsible manner, using the most up-to-date technological advancements in equipment and processes.
