  6. Acoustic Smart Cement for Well Integrity Diagnostics

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 19b

    Cementing is an integral part of well construction, providing the seal, protection, and support for the casing to maintain barriers that isolate the well.Wells can experience integrity failure due to structural instability in cemented regions due to subsidence and compaction caused by reservoir depletion over the lifetime of the well.Increased knowledge of cement placement, integrity, and conditio ...
