If it was difficult to drill and difficult to set casing, Would you expect cementing to be the easiest part?
Dear Group members, I have to apologise because It is already more than a month since our last challenge (challenge No. 3). During this period, I was dedicated to lunching my free technical support site: http://better-cementing-for-all.org and I would like to thank you all for your support and level of response.
In this opportunity, I would like to post a challenge related to pre-job planing, and despite the way this question looks, this challenge is applicable to drillers, cementers and the whole drilling team.
Referring to a well’s section:
If it was difficult to drill and difficult to set the casing, Would you expect cementing to be the easiest part?
Hints or common lines of thinking:
– Translate drilling events to cementing challenges or opportunities,
– Be ready to adjust your cement program, why? or why not?
– Some cementers would say: We just pump Cement ! 🙁
– Some drillers would say: We don’t want change in the “standard” cement program 🙁
– A best practice is not necessarily a generic method, is it?
– Cementing is not an isolated event, is it?
– It is just cement… What else you need to do? give me a break !!
Looking at the quality of the responses to the first 3 challenges, I am excited to see what you guys are going to say about this one. The best comments will be posted in my site (http://better-cementing-for-all.org), as I believe they will be quite educational.
P. D. You might have noticed that I am still skipping a challenge about zonal isolation interpretation… I think that is a topic just too controversial… It is like soccer .. 🙂 . I promise that I will do it next time.
