      Course Overview

      Painful experience has shown that even the most robust drilling programme can fail through incorrect implementation techniques. Due to the increased challenges and numerous procedural revisions associated with high angle wells, educating personnel on how to identify issues, before they become problems is crucial in delivering a successful deviated well.

    Do you have an event that you want to promote?

    For consultants and companies who wish to promote their events or courses, we can set up your account. This consists of a company profile page, with any media, and links back to the relevant pages of your website. You provide the details, and we will design and publish on your behalf.

    We charge a setup fee of $100 per company page, which will be hosted on our website permanently.

    Prices for each event are based on a maximum number of delegates:

    • Up to 30 attendees: $25 per event.
    • 31-100 attendees: $50 per event.
    • 100+ attendees: $100 per event.

    Then, we can add your company and event(s) to our calendar. You can have a write-up for both your company and event, with a photo, a map, and any other promotional information provided.

    These pages will be indexed in the search engines and will show up when potential attendees search. Drillers.com has good standing in the search engines, so this is permanent publicity and promotion for your company.

    We also publicise your event on social media, reach out to our network, and do what we can to get attention.

    Incidentally, we can also help you with PR, articles and other good stuff; we can work out a custom advertising package for you. Take a look at our MEDIA PACK and RATE CARD for more details on our promotional services.
