Oil and Gas Well Technology Series
Stage 3 OPITO Certificate in Oil & Gas Well Technology, accredited by City & Guilds
The Oil and Gas Well Technology series will help candidates 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 series consists of 3 modules which include workbooks and a ‘Guide to open learning’:
- Oilwell Drilling Technology
- Oilwell Production Technology
- Drilling Calculations
These self study modules enable the candidate to select learning materials that suit his or her own particular requirements. Modules can be studied at the candidates own pace and should be studied in the order set out. The study time needed will vary from one module to another, and from one individual to another – we recommend between 40 - 60 hours for each module.
Candidates can register for modules individually or enrol for the complete series – modules are non-transferrable and can only be assigned to one candidate. Each module is assessed by examination and an individual certificate endorsed by City and Guilds 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.
