Cement Technology for Trinidad Drilling Academy
The TCL Learning Academy was pleased to partner with the NESC Drilling Academy to host our seminar: "Cement Technology for Trinidad Drilling Academy". The seminar took place on Friday 8th August in Ste Madeline. There were 25 drilling students who participated in the seminar that covered the basics of cement and moved into the uses of concrete in the Gas and Oil industry.
The presentation began by teaching the students what cement is, its chemical compounds and definition. The process for the creation of Portland Cement at the TCL plant was explained followed by the six different types of cement.
The seminar then delved into Type "G" cement specifically, the type of cement used to for the concrete that creates oil wells. The drilling students were taught the properties of Type "G" and its contributing compounds. The presentation the focused on the uses of Type 'G" in the Oil and Gas field, mainly how a well bore is cemented and sealed for various reasons.
