Designed for wells where a foamed cement with react and respond features is required
With Tuned Cementing Solutions™ cementing systems, Halliburton has created a set of innovative fit-for-purpose solutions with the flexibility required to allow each system to be tuned specifically for a given set of wellbore conditions. LifeSeal cements form one of these families of fit-for-purpose solutions.
With LifeSeal cement you receive a foamed cementing solution that provides all the benefits that foam cement has to offer, in addition to the ability to react and respond to cement sheath failure. LifeSeal cements typically exhibit increased resilience and elasticity, and thus will be more capable of withstanding the stresses present in the downhole environment. However, should the sheath fail, LifeSeal cements contain proprietary swellable materials that will ordinarily remain dormant in the set cement sheath, but when activated by contact with hydrocarbons will react and respond to work to automatically seal a microannulus or crack in a cement sheath thereby inhibiting the flow of fluid.
When it is critical that the cement sheath last as long as the reserves, think LifeSeal cement.
LifeSeal cements can provide the maximum benefit in wells that may be prone to cement sheath failure, such as high-rate producers, storage wells, deepwater wells, injection wells, thermal recovery wells or high-pressure/high-temperature (HPHT) wells. Consider LifeSeal cement or a WellLife® III service, (LifeSeal cement in conjunction with WellLife modeling, analysis, design software and delivery of an engineered cement system and the Cement Assurance® tool) when it is critical that the cement sheath last as long as the reserves.
Foamed cement solution designed for situations where conditions require a cement with greater elasticity, resiliency and the ability to react and respond to cement sheath failure by expanding to seal off unwanted flow should hydrocarbon flow through microannuli or cracks in the cement sheath at any point during the life of the well.
