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.
However, a minimum of technical knowledge is required to understand (and eventually write) a cementing program (materials, additives and the physics of placement and displacement). This will also be covered during the course.

How we build your confidence
The course and the teaching are built for operational staff. As many case studies as possible are presented and participants are encouraged to bring their own. Most of the presentation is made up of going through examples. Exercises are used during the teaching. The interaction between the instructor (more the person sharing his knowledge) and the participants is critical. Therefore questions are more than welcome, even if they interrupt the sequence at which the modules are presented.
