Although primarily designed for industry personnel or college students studying petroleum technology, it is useful for anyone who wants or needs to know more about rotary drilling. The Drilling Technology Series consists of three manuals of material similar to that in the Drilling Technology Correspondence Courses. Based on the material in the second edition of the Rotary Drilling Series, these books are both more condensed and more technical than the drilling series. This series responds to the need for more detailed explanation of drilling procedures and the math used in connection with them. Review questions are provided.This segment starts where it all begins -- in the earths subsurface, where oil and gas form and accumulate. Once basic geological concepts are explained, the segment moves on to a thorough explanation and description of the rotary rig and its components, focusing on the mud system, the drill stem, and the bit.
