If you would like to learn about drilling engineering, this book, Applied Drilling Engineering – Spe Textbook Series, is my recommendation. The book contains various topics regarding drilling engineering.
What will you learn from this book?
Rotary drilling – basic of drilling rigs, rig power system, hoisting system, circulating system, etc.
Drilling fluids – Mud test, pilot test, water based mud and oil based mud.
Cements – composition of cement, cement testing, cement additives, and cement placement techniques used in the drilling field.
Drilling hydraulics – Hydrostatic pressure, annular pressure during well control operation, buoyancy factor, non static well condition, flow through jet bits, rheology models, laminar and turbulent flow, surge/swab pressure and particle slip velocity.
