What is Cementing?
Cementing is one of the most important operations performed on a well in order to ensure complete zonal isolation, aquifer protection, and the structural integrity of the wellbore. Without it, the well may never reach its full production potential, and liquids from one zone could interfere with, or be lost to, another. After drilling a well, steel pipe – called casing – is inserted into the hole. Cement is then pumped down the pipe and circulated up the annulus to create a strong barrier of protection between the well and rock formations.
Our greatest strength in cementing is our experience. We combine extensive technical and field knowledge with state-of-the-art tools, equipment, formulations, and ongoing research and development to give you the properties and the strength you need for zonal isolation and casing support.
We develop innovative and fit-for-purpose cementing equipment complemented by technologically-advanced, proprietary cement blends and chemistry. Our cementing equipment features climate controlled, enclosed operator cabs, mass flow meters, re-circulating mixers and DAS (data acquisition systems) that record all job parameters in real time. We use a high-energy, dustless, closed mixing system that yields extremely accurate cement densities, while eliminating the environmental and health hazards associated with using older style ground-mixing systems.
