This course is the joint-cooperative effort of Ngee Ann Polytechnic Centre of Innovation – Marine & Offshore Technology and AZUR Offshore, UK. The course is designed to help the participants to acquire the fundamental knowledge on Marine Drilling processes on offshore jack-up and floater drilling rigs. The course outlines the various types of drilling rig and details their drilling facilities and systems employed in drilling wells (the derrick, the drill string, the use of drilling muds and cementing). Special attention is given to the Marine Drilling components of the Blow Out Preventer, The Marine Drilling Riser the Riser Tensioner and Heave Compensation Systems. Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to understand the basics of offshore rigs design, their working principles and how wells are drilled offshore. Case Studies and videos will be used to illustrate lessons learned from past successful projects. The case of the failure and oil spillage from the rig in the Gulf of Mexico will be also discussed.

A DVD of the course videos and presentation Figures in colour will be distributed with the lecture notes.
