Course Description

Cementing is a very important phase of the well construction plan. Operating company personnel must have a good working knowledge of cements, cementing additives, and placement procedures. The operator is critical to the success of the job. This course covers the importance of the cement sheath integrity during the life of the well. The parameters that the cement sheath will be subjected to must be considered. The course covers the use of cement formulations, cement additives, casing hardware, cement blending, on-site mixing equipment, and a well-planned job procedure. Cementing guidelines that aid in overall job performance will be covered.
