Designing an obtaining a good primary cement job is a critical phase in well construction and in maintaining the integrity of a well throughout its life cycle. Ensuring zonal isolation and the integrity of the cement sheath are also critical components in casing design and cement design.

This workshop will cover the fundamentals of cementing practices and a state- of- the- art review of cement evaluation techniques – including cement bond logs such as CBL/USIT/CAST-V/SBT/Isolation Scanner etc.

Basic principles of casing design will also be covered since both casing design and cementing have to be considered together in order to ensure that the drilled well has integrity throughout its life cycle.

Summary and Wrap-up


This webinar is presented in five 1.5-hour sessions, one session per week in consecutive weeks.


The topics shown for each session are best estimates based on previous presentations of the course. Notes will be provided prior to the sessions so that participants can preview the material to be covered.

Questions and comments based on the experience of the class participants are welcome, and often provide insights to local conditions and methods which would not otherwise be presented. In this webinar format, questions will be addressed in the last 15 minutes of each session.
