Gunnar Lende
Job Title
Technical Manager, Cementing

Gunnar Lende started his career in the aviation industry where he got certified as a mechanic on fixed-wing aircraft. He later ventured into the oil and gas industry and acquired a BSc in mechanical engineering. Despite this background, he since then has worked primarily with fluids related to cementing for 35 years, both in operations and in research and development. His skill set is applied across multiple disciplines ranging from management, designing tools and hardware, through fluid design to cured cement properties, and specialized laboratory testing.  He has over the last couple of decades focused more on cement mechanical properties and their role in well integrity. In the last years, he has worked with CO2 both from a footprint and resistance point of view. His role as technical manager in Halliburton Norway is combined with managing the EESSA Technology laboratory located in Tananger Norway.
