Introduction

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-days intensive Cementing Technologies 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

Objectives

By the end of this Glomacs training course, participants will learn to:

  • Calculate Volumes of Cement, Mix Water and Additives
  • Understand the critical parameters for any cementing operation
  • Select displacement rates for effective mud removal
  • When to select Two Stage Cementing
  • Select the proper Additives based on Well Conditions
  • Read and perform Interpretation of Cement Bond Logs
  • Understand Special Cement Systems
  • Select Casing Hardware for successful Cementing Operations

Training Methodology

This training course will be presented using properly designed slides, some with animation and several videos on relevant issues. A printed manual containing all the slides and/or electronic form in PDF will be delivered to each attendant. Teaching methods include also calculations on related issues and several examples of Cement Logs will be presented for interpretation.

Who Should Attend?

This Glomacs training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Petroleum Engineers
  • Production Engineers
  • Drilling Engineers
  • Completion Engineers
  • Oil Field Technical Staff
