Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course?

Cementing operations are critical for well life as they constitute the foundations of any gas or oil well. Well Integrity is compromised, unless efficient cementing operations are carried out in every casing job. Like the foundations of a house, Cementing is the basis for an efficient well performance.

This 4-day intensive Cementing Technologies online training course will highlight:

  • Overview of Primary Cementing
  • Cement Placement (Job Execution and Procedures)
  • Cement Calculations
  • Cement Additives and Mud Removal
  • Effective Cement Placement
  • Cement Job Evaluation
  • HSE and Cementing
