    Fundamentals of Cement Evaluation - RILS

    This is a virtual course under Remote Instructor Led Series (RILS), delivered in three-days in daily 4-hour sessions. The course describes fundamentals of Cement Bond Evaluation, discussing cement properties, and cement logging analyis.

    Being a practical application of these fundamentals, the course starts discussing the utility and application of cement integrity and how to "calculate" it, and what parameters it encompasses. Cement properties are re-visited and course then focus on the interpretation of cement bond logs, and the quality control of these logs. 

    Hardcopies of the presentations are handled to the Attendants, and formulas and exercises are provided as a toolbox - a Practical Companion to Well Integrity - Cement Bond Evaluation.

    A pre-course quiz will be electronic sent to the Attendants to enable the Instructor to adjust the lecture to optimum effciency, and a last-day quiz will measure improvement.

    At the end of the course, Attendants will become conversant in the applications related to Well Integrity - Cement Bond Evaluation.
