Is cementing only a question of ensuring well bore integrity or is it a means to enhance oil and gas production, at a lower cost, without impacting the environment? Is the cementing community a closed society of specialists or an open community that interacts with the whole oil and gas industry? What are the main challenges cementing faces when pushing its limits?
This workshop aims 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 the efficiency with which we truly participate to solving the main issues of the oil and gas community, which increase well life while maintaining the low costs, manage risk in dynamic subsurface conditions while improving economics, and lower environmental risks.
