|Primary Cementing - Cementing I - PCE|
|Casing and Cementing - CAC|
Discipline: Well Construction/Drilling
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): Subhash Shah, Marc Summers
|This course builds a firm foundation in the principles and practices of designing, planning and conducting successful casing and cement jobs. The course uses a process-based perspective that takes participants from initial casing depth and size selection, casing and liner design procedures, casing running practices, and planning and executing primary cementing through remedial cementing and plugging operations. In addition to the necessary technical information and procedures, the course is laced with considerable practical, experience-based content. Participants will be furnished Dr. Byrom's textbook, "Casing and Liners for Drilling and Completion," and computer spreadsheets to facilitate routine calculations.|
Personnel responsible for planning, overseeing, and conducting casing and cementing operations; operator and service personnel.
