Elkem Oilfield delivers a comprehensive package of cementing additives to design special and cost-effective cement slurry systems, and to ensure safe and reliable cement placement across the wellbore for long-term zonal isolation.
Our product portfolio includes a variety of gas-tight solutions, spacer additives for effective removal of drilling fluids, cement retarders for desired thickening times, extenders, and dispersants for optimal rheological properties.
Our fluid loss additives are fit-for-purpose and our special systems and products are tailored for demanding oil and gas wells. Cementing basically means the placement of a material that sets to form a solid mass which has supporting or isolating properties. Sounds easy? A poor cementation can significantly impact on safety, environment, well performance and ROI. A poor cement job can result in very high remedial costs.
Cementing is carried out to provide support for casing / liner strings in order to prevent movement, to resist deformation of the surrounding formation which may impact upon tubulars and cause their collapse, to provide pressure tight seal between different zones, to isolate tubulars from corrosive gases and liquids, as kick-off plugs, as lost circulation material and in well abandonment.
Elkem Oilfield portfolio covers all aspect of oil-well cementing. Our products enables operators to carry out oil-well cementing operations in a cost-efficient and safe manner.
