This five-day 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.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:
