Event description


Course overview

Cementing is a critical function in well construction and maintenance. It is required to understand cement and additive chemistry, as well as lab procedures, placement and evaluation methods. After the completion of the course, the participants will be able to design, supervise the execution and perform cement job evaluation.

The course is covering the design, execution and evaluation of primary cementing such as cement and cementing additive selection, laboratory testing, cement placement, gas migration control, long term cement zonal isolation, cement bond log evaluation as well as remedial cementing (plug & squeeze). Case histories in complex environment such as deepwater, HPHT and horizontal wells will also be studied.

The participants will practice job design exercises, cementing calculations, as well as evaluation methods of cementing jobs using actual well data. Demos and case histories of cement design and software will be performed.

The course is designed for

  • Drilling / Completion / Production / Intervention Engineers
  • Well Site Leaders and Superintendents
  • Service Company Technical, Operation and Field Management Personnel
  • Drilling / Completion / Production / Intervention Managers
  • Persons responsible for all aspects of well construction and operation
  • Personnel responsible for all aspects of well construction and operation
