Applied Well Cementing Engineering delivers the latest technologies, case studies, and procedures to identify the challenges, understand the framework, and implement the solutions for today's cementing and petroleum engineers. Covering the basics and advances, this contributed reference gives the complete design, flow and job execution in a structured process. Authors, collectively, bring together knowledge from over 250 years of experience in cementing and condense their knowledge into this book. Real-life successful and unsuccessful case studies are included to explain lessons learned about the technologies used today. Other topics include job simulation, displacement efficiency, and hydraulics. A practical guide for cementing engineer, Applied Well Cementing Engineering, gives a critical reference for better job execution.
- Provides a practical guide and industry best practices for both new and seasoned engineers
- Independent chapters enable the readers to quickly access specific subjects
- Gain a complete framework of a cementing job with a detailed road map from casing equipment to plug and abandonment
