Casing Design and Cementing Principles

Casing Design and Cementing Principles


Drilling and Workover

Course Duration

5 days

Delivery Method


The course focuses on casing design and cementing practices, the two fundamental topics in drilling operations. Upon the completion of this course, the participants will be able to design and select casing grades based on triaxial loading calculations and other metallurgical considerations. They will also be able to design the cement slurry requirements, thickening time and pumping procedure.
