THERMAL WELL INTEGRITY SEMINAR -
DEFINING CEMENT INTEGRITY
Several factors affect the ability to achieve and successfully interpret the pre-steam cement bond / integrity and associated hydraulic isolation at a well. The process starts with the field layout and individual well designs and continues through equipment selection, cement blend design, drilling & cementing parameters selection and implementation, and cement bond / integrity evaluation.
Through a 1 hr review of key technical parameters and 1 hr discussion of case histories, this seminar will identify and briefly discuss several factors that facilitate achieving effective cement placement and bond to both casing & formation, cement bond / integrity evaluation, and estimation of hydraulic isolation. While some factors and well installation parameters are field-specific, most are applicable to all wells regardless of the field / reservoir and well operating practices. Based on the case histories presented, specific mitigating actions can also be discussed.
Since several technical factors in well design, cement blend selection, drilling programs, well installation, cement bond logging / evaluation and interpreting hydraulic isolation will be discussed, attendees are required to have at least a couple of years' experience in thermal well design, installation or cement bond / integrity evaluation.
