Cementing Operations


This course covers the knowledge required to be able to understand a cementing program. It is therefore ideal for drilling engineers or/and supervisors/superintendents.
During a cementing job decisions have to be taken sometimes quickly (e.g. stop displacement or not). It is therefore important for the operations staff to understand the consequences of their decisions. Many problems on cementing jobs are due to the operator changes in the cementing program.
