Cementing Engineering Software Suite Training


A successful cement job is one of the most important factors for the productive life of any well. Some of the challenges that oil and service companies face today include U-tubing, high ECD, loss of circulation and excessive pump pressure, temperature prediction, etc. These concerns can be best analyzed using computer models, which allow engineers to see the efforts of different design parameters prior to any job being performed. Using these models, potential problems can be identified and cementing designs can be tuned before pumping begins.

This course covers the engineering basics involved in cementing operations and utilizes software packages (CEMPRO+, CentraDesign and CEMLife) to illustrate pre-job design and post-job analysis. You do not need to be a user to attend this training course, as temporary licenses will be provided to all attendees free of charge.


  • Understand fluid properties and behavior
  • Describe Cementing Engineering challenges including U-tubing, high ECD, loss of circulation, etc.
  • Model the displacement of multiple fluids within a wellbore
  • Provide guidelines and a list of considerations in computer modeling and jobs
  • Understand displacement efficiency
  • Learn how to adjust operation parameters to optimize operations
  • Avoid job failures and increase success rate

Learning Level:

Beginner - Intermediate

Course Length:

3 Days

Certification Program:

  • Training Certificate example

    A CEMPRO+ certification will be issued upon the completion of the training course. This certificate will differentiate you with skills and knowledge in well cementing job modeling. Earning this industry certification demonstrates to employers and perspective clients that you have the technical skills to maximize what CEMPRO+ can do.

    Benefits of having a CEMPRO+ certification:

    • Earn an industry-recognized credential that helps prove your skill level and project a more professional image for your employer.
    • Develop your skills with sample projects and exercises that emphasize real-world applications.
    • Accelerate your professional development and enhance your credibility and career success.
