Mohamad Abou Chahine, fourth year, BE Petroleum Eng., BAU
My internship was in DOSCO SA Co. was organized by Oil and Gas University from Ploiesti in Romania, within Erasmus+ project GOPELC, in the period between 3 June and 18 July 2017. DOSCO Petro services has over 35 years of experience in providing customers with quality rental equipment, supplies and services for the Oil & Gas industry. A schedule was made for the training days containing theoretical lectures, tours in the company’s base, and visits to near fields. Supervisors provide some lectures and talks introducing the drilling industry, BHA and down hole tools, drilling fluid and cementing, fishing and milling tools, BOPs, and emergency response planning. In the company’s base, we were introduced to drilling equipment (bits, collars, centralizers, stabilizers and drilling jars), fishing tools, pressure control equipment (BOP, manifolds …), tubular handling tools (elevators, tongs…). We visited hammering job to set the conductor casing to a new well. We also visited a drilling rig in a nearby field and saw the drilling components. At the end of the internship a project was handled to the supervisor. It was really a good experience.
