In the past weeks, I received some requests to include cement job processes or procedures, as reference material, into the website; and I was puzzled about the best way to do that without going into too much detail. Finally, I have come up with a generic flowchart for my two favorite high-level process: 1) The overall process and 2) Cementing fluids QA/QC. Please see below:
I have always been a fan of flowcharts, and they might be a thing of the past, but I find them to be a very good method to explain a process and being able to see all the steps and how thet are linked to produce an outcome. These two are probably the most important process flowchart in well cementing.
Now, if you look at the cementing flowchart, there is a STAGE 4 missing; CAN YOU TELL WHAT IS IT? .. and no clues here, I think you should know by now, I normally refer to this stage in most of my posts about getting Well Cementing Right. CAN YOU TELL?
