How Does Oilfield Cementing Work?

What is Oilfield Cementing?

Oilfield cementing is the procedure of developing and pumping cement into a wellbore. Cementing helps to protect and seal a wellbore.

The Oilfield Cementing Process

Whether it’s used for oil well drilling production or wellbore abandonment, the general cementing process includes:

  1. The oilfield cementing process begins with adding cement slurry into a wellbore using cementing pumping. Any drilling fluids previously used within the well for the drilling production process, are replaced with
  2. The newly added cement slurry naturally flows to the bottom of the wellbore, through the casing, which eventually becomes the pipe through which hydrocarbons flow to the surface.
  3. From there, the cement fills in the space between the casing and the wellbore and hardens. The thickening time is determined by the operators.
  4. The set cement becomes a newly created seal that helps prevent external materials from entering the well flow. The seal also helps permanently position the casing into place.

Top Recommended Products for Oilfield Cementing

Cementing services need high-quality industrial products created by trusted manufacturers to ensure a successful oilfield cementing operation.

Here are some of the top trending products chosen by industry leaders and drilling operators across Canada:

1. Bentonite Premium Gel NT

Bentonite is a clay generated from the alteration of volcanic ash. Its properties create a gelatinous and viscous fluid commonly used for hydration, swelling, water absorption, and viscosity through various applications.

For industrial operations, Bentonite is used to lubricate and cool cutting tools, to remove cuttings, and to help prevent blowouts.

2. Calcium Carbonate

Calcium carbonate is a drilling additive, used as a formation-bridging and filter cake-sealing agent. It is also a weighting material used to increase the density of drilling fluids to control downhole pressure.

3. Hydrated Lime

Hydrated Lime, also known as Slaked Lime, is used to provide a source of calcium and hydroxyl ions in both water base and invert emulsion oil fluids.
