Energy wells are designed to be a safe conduit for the recovery of oil, gas, heavy oil, hydrates and even steam. The environments from which energy is extracted can be harsh, and cement systems play a key role in maintaining the integrity of the well. Cyclic loading from geo-mechanical and geo-chemical stresses occurs daily, yet wellbore architecture must resist failure due to deformation, fatigue, cracking and corrosion.
Halliburton offers the largest selection of materials, chemicals and additives for specific wellbore conditions than any other services provider in the industry. These additives and materials help tailor and optimize cement systems, enabling them to convey long-term performance advantages for wells subject to the most challenging conditions such as wide-varying temperature changes, fluctuating formation pressures, and corrosive elements.
Options for cementing additives include :
- Fluid loss agents
- Suspension aids
- Gas migration additives
- Weighting agents
