1-1-1: High-performance drilling course and a piece of wisdom from Thomas Edison

Posted by

I have enrolled myself into the High-Performance Drilling Course at Texas A&M University in January.

If you’re convinced of the potential of physics-based approach to drilling performance, this is like THE course to take.

This course used to be taught by Professor Fred Dupriest. It is now delivered by Professor Samuel Noynaert.

This is a course that welcomes working professionals from the industry and you can also take it at distance. Through an entire four-month semester, you can dive deep into the Limiter Redesign framework, the physics in different aspects of drilling, and share experience with fellow students as to how to change the way people work (This is what Limiter Redesign is about!)

Due to some technical issues with the learning management system, you may still have a chance to jump into this course. Contact Professor Noynaert if you’re interested.

Anyways, I plan to share my learnings along this much anticipated educational journey. So stay tuned!


“If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.”

Thomas A. Edison


If you see the potential of the physics-based approach to drilling, what’s the single biggest obstacle that you need to overcome to start implementing?

Until next week,
