Cementing, Filling the Gaps

25 – 27 March 2014

Lyon, France | Hilton Lyon

About this Workshop


What issues keep the cementing experts awake at night, other than the usual last-minute changes, finding the proper materials, or quality control? What technical issues really concern the experts?

This workshop will aim to understand what we currently do to address a wide array of cementing challenges and how we deal with them. It will then progress into a critical analysis of how much of what we do is truly applicable and what the industry must to do to fill in the gaps as we look to the future. Main topics will address various areas related to long term zonal isolation and the factors influencing the successful installation and maintenance of a wellbore seal.
