Good course on subsurface tubulars. It is a very specialised subject so may not be useful to anyone outside the oil and gas exploration and drilling industries. Does also have some small sections which are slightly biased sales material for Tenaris and their products.

Very brief and clear, albeit, with deep teaching by the instructor. The examples cited by the instructor are of immense assistance in understanding the concept taught. I now have perfect understanding of the difference between casing and tubing as forms of pipes (tubular goods) that we come across in inspection reports submitted by Piping inspectors in our everyday business of Coordinating Third Party Inspection Services of OCTG Pipes. I use this medium to say a big thank you to Tenaris for this wonderful opportunity provided and the Tutor/Instructor's team for delivering the course in an understandable manner.
