SPEI: Cement Evaluation and Remediation




Cement Evaluation and Repair is a two-day training program that will focus on detection of fluid channels, voids and leaks, and their effective repair. Poor cement coverage often leads to failure of hydraulic zonal isolation and production of undesired fluids, disposal issues, reservoir pressure decline, loss of hydrocarbon reserves and other problems.  As a wellbore ages, leakage paths in the containment may develop, allowing fluid to migrate from the high pressure downhole strata through the cement sheath resulting in sustained casing pressure (SCP) or microannulus leaks.


Numerous logging tools and technologies are reviewed to evaluate cement integrity prior to initial completion or anytime during the life of the well. Techniques that are available to repair the primary cement to the proper stage of hydraulic isolation or solve the SCP problem will also be discussed. The first day of the Training Course is dedicated to cement evaluation and the second day to cement repair.
