Fred Wiegand presented his newly designed advanced course called "DeepWater Drilling Engineering" in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia  ( KL MY ) on 1, 2, and 3 July 2009.

Updating and upgrading this DW DE course is continuing, with plans to present this course in the Spanish and Russian languages soon.

This course is even more important since the Macondo blowout in the US waters of the Gulf of Mexico. 


In July, August and September 2010, Fred worked as Deepwater Drilling Superintendent for CON SON in Vietnam, helping with daily operations of the TransOcean Actinia semisubmersible floating drilling rig in the South China Sea, drilling in hardrock granite and helping discover significant reserves of crude oil in fractures in the granite basement rock.  The two-stage cement job of the 9 5/8 inch casing by Schlumberger, was successful.

Years past, Fred was supervisor on the Diamond Hunter semisubmesible for Occidenal E &P out of Fortaleza, Brazil.

Fred Wiegand worked on the Discoverer 534 as Senior Drilling Engieering for Esso Ex in Cote D'Ivoire West Africa, assisting with the discovery of a new oil & gas field in deepwater just west of the capital city of Abidjan, Ivory Coast.

Steve Knabe, also deepwater drilling engineer for Esso Ex, is a good reference for this work by Fred.
