Cementing Operations

4.5 Average client rating (based on 227 attendee reviews)

Cementing is a fundamental element of effective well construction.  By understanding cement chemistry, additive use, and lab procedures the participants will able to build a solid foundation to design and execute cement jobs.  Mud removal and centralization will be taught so that the participants can apply effective processes to ensure cement job success.

Special purpose cements will be discussed in a way to show when they should and should not be used, as well as how they can be used to solve challenges encountered in complex and extreme well environments.  Foamed, engineered particle sized, flexible, and salt cements will also be covered in detail.

During this course, participants will practice cementing calculations, as well as job design exercises and cement evaluation methods using real-life examples.  Liner cementing and stage cementing jobs will be developed in the classroom. Cement design software will also be demonstrated.

    Day 1

    Cement Placement and Primary Cement 

    • Primary cementing overview
    • Criteria for successful cementing
    • Casing hardware
    • Cement chemistry    

    On the first day, the importance of effective cement placement will be taught, as well as the hardware used to accomplish quality primary cement jobs.  Mud removal methods, techniques, and systems will be covered so that the participants will be able to recommend appropriate methods for their wells.

    Day 2

    Cementing Additives

    • Cementing additives
    • Rheology
    • Cement laboratory equipment
    • Mud removal techniques
    • Temperature prediction and importance in job success
    • Set cement properties

    The proper use of additives is critical to a successful efficient cement job.  On this day, participants will learn how additives can affect cement slurries, the job, and the long term integrity of the well.   An understanding of lab procedures and what the tests results mean will help ensure futures jobs are accurately evaluated.  Participants will also learn how to estimate or measure temperatures so that slurries can be designed with minimal risk and WOC time needed. 

    Day 3

    Special Purpose Cements

    • Salt cementing
    • Gas migration control
    • Foamed cement
    • Engineered particle slurry cements
    • Lost circulation    

    On the third day, through lecture and demonstration, participants will learn about the different types of special purpose cements used at high and low temperatures.  Unstable fluid columns, plastic formations, and conditions, which are conducive to gas migration, will be covered.

    Day 4

    Cement Job Designs and Calculations 

    • Primary cement job design
    • Primary cementing calculations
    • Stage and liner cementing
    • High angle and horizontal cementing
    • Deepwater, plug, and squeeze cementing

    The fourth day will focus on the more practical aspect of the cement job design as well as calculations.  Also, some of the more technical jobs will be explain so participants can learn to appreciate the challenges of a more complicated cement job.  For participants who may be involved in deepwater operations, they will have a chance to learn how the special application is addressed and why it is different from conventional cementing operations.  Remedial and abandonment cementing jobs will be discussed as well.

    Day 5

    Cement Job Execution, Procedures, and Evaluation

    • Cement job execution
    • Cement job procedures
    • Cement quality evaluation
    • Sonic and ultrasonic tools
    • Cementing design and evaluation software

    On the last day participants will apply what they have learned into actual job designs and outline job procedures.  Tools used to measure the quality of the cement behind pipes will be explained and participants will also get a chance to apply that knowledge to well logs.  A complete review of the course will be given to ensure a thorough understanding of the topics covered during the entire five day course. 

  • Audience

    Drilling professionals needing to advance their knowledge of cementing. Both persons responsible for design, as well as the execution of cement jobs will benefit from this course.

  • Prerequisites

    Participants should have a basic knowledge of the oil and gas industry.  Some understanding of cement use will be needed. They will also need to bring a hand calculator and be prepared to perform exercises in class.

  • Location

    Kuala Lumpur

    Kuala Lumpur is the capital and largest city of Malaysia.

    Beginning in the 1990s, the city has played host to many international sporting, political and cultural events including the 1998 Commonwealth Games and the Formula One World Championship. In addition, Kuala Lumpur is home to the tallest twin buildings in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers.

    Protected by the Titiwangsa Mountains in the east and Indonesia's Sumatra Island in the west, Kuala Lumpur has a tropical rainforest climate which is warm and sunny, along with abundant rainfall, especially during the northeast monsoon season from October to March.

    The major tourist destinations in Kuala Lumpur include the Dataran Merdeka (the Independence Square), the House of Parliament, the Istana Budaya, the Istana Negara (National Palace), the Kuala Lumpur Tower, the Muzium Negara (National Museum), the Putra World Trade Centre, the Tugu Negara (National Monument) and mosques such as the Masjid Jamek, the Masjid Negara (National Mosque) and the Federal Territory Mosque.

    Other tourist attractions include the Aquaria KLCC, the Batu Caves, the Makam Pahlawan (National Mausoleum), the National Science Centre, Petaling Street, the Royal Selangor Pewter Visitor Centre, the Zoo Negara (National Zoo), and events such as Malay cultural centres, the Chinese cultural festivals at the Thean Hou Temple and the Thaipusam procession at the Sri Mahamariamman Temple. The Golden Triangle, the commercial hub of the city, contains the Petronas Twin Towers and has a distinctive nightlife. Trendy nightclubs, bars and lounges, such as the Beach Club, Espanda, the Hakka Republic Wine Bar & Restaurant, Hard Rock Cafe, the Luna Bar, Nuovo, Rum Jungle, the Thai Club, Zouk, and many others are located within and around Jalan P. Ramlee, Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Ampang.

    Hotels, from five-star to budget types, have cropped up everywhere to accommodate the influx of tourists each year. There are many hotels near Kuala Lumpur's entertainment and business districts.

    Kuala Lumpur alone has 66 shopping malls and it is the retail and fashion hub for Malaysia. Suria KLCC is one of Malaysia's premier shopping destinations due to its location beneath the Petronas Twin Towers.

    Kuala Lumpur Sky Line

    The Perdana Lake Gardens near the Malaysian Parliament building includes a Butterfly Park, Deer Park, Orchid Garden, Hibiscus Garden and Kuala Lumpur Bird Park, Southeast Asia's largest bird park.

    There are three forest reserves within the city namely the Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve in the city centre, the oldest gazetted forest reserve in the country, Bukit Sungai Putih Forest Reserve and Bukit Sungai Besi Forest Reserve. Bukit Nanas, in the heart of the city centre, is one of the oldest virgin forests in the world within a city. These residual forest areas are home to a number of fauna species particularly monkeys, tree shrews, squirrels and birds.

    Kuala Lumpur is a hub for cultural activities and events in Malaysia. Among the centres is the National Museum which is situated along the Mahameru Highway. Its collection comprises artifacts and paintings collected throughout the country. Kuala Lumpur also has an Islamic Arts Museum which houses more than seven thousand Islamic artefacts including rare exhibits as well as a library of Islamic art books. However, the museum's collection not only concentrate on works from the Middle East, the museum also puts the emphasis on Asia, with China and Southeast Asia especially well represented. This museum features some impressively decorated domes and large open exhibition spaces. It is located at Jalan Lembah Perdana next to the National Mosque.

    Kuala Lumpur is one of the host cities for the Formula One World Championship, the open-wheel auto racing A1 Grand Prix and the Motorcycle Grand Prix with races being held at Sepang International Circuit in the neighbouring state of Selangor, next to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
