In 2016, I launched Better Cementing for All. Since then, it has been visited by many thousands – and probably by hundreds of oil well cementers. Now, I want to keep it alive.
For more than 24 years, I have worked in oil well cementing, offering my services to some of the largest oil corporations in the world and committing myself to excellence. I have mastered my role, and in doing so, I have accrued a skill set that is extremely valuable to my fellow professionals. Eager to do whatever I can to help them, I have owned and operated Better Cementing for All since 2016. That is what this campaign is all about.
Before I get to that, though, let me tell you what Better Cementing for All does and what it means. A resource for all oil industry professionals and cementers, both established and prospective, this is a non-profit resource that I established to do nothing but serve and impact people looking to build careers for themselves in cementing.
From primary cementing to remedial cementing to plug cementing to post-job results, I do it all, and I am comfortable answering in-depth questions about each one of these topics. I also offer tools and tips for job seekers, general self-development advice, and guidance for equipment choices. To put it simply, this is the go-to spot for anyone who wants to know anything about oil well cementing.
The problem, however, is that covid-19 has made the structure of the website seem untenable. I am trying to juggle my work and my non-profit initiatives and finding it all unhealthy and unsustainable. I want to keep Better Cementing for All up and running, but I need your help to do that.
Now more than ever, we face a loss of expertise in our industry. Better Cementing for All is a unifying force, featuring interactions among industry professionals, sharing knowledge through posts, and other valuable pieces of content that we need to preserve.
To thank anyone who contributes $250 or more, I am offering an hour-long one-on-one chat about the topic of your choosing. You can pick my brain, we can toss some ideas back and forth, or we can just talk cementing in general. It’s up to you!
