Well Cementing Services Market: Development, Opportunities and Market Outlook (2016-26)

Well cementing operation is one of the most important operations of an oil & gas project. Without a perfect cementing job in the well, the project cannot proceed further. Well cementing services aims at introducing cement in the annular space between the drilled wellbore and the casing or to the annular space between two successive casing strings. Cement is used primarily as an impermeable seal material, bonding the casing to the formation or can be used for repair work on producing wells. The basic functions of an oilwell cement are:

  1. To prevent the movement of fluids from one formation to another or from one formation to surface through the annulus
  2. To support the casing string
  3. To protect the casing string from corrosive formation fluids, etc.

The cementing job is mandatory for any project. Thus, the well cementing market is always booming. The global well cementing services market was approximately valued at 7.5 billion USD in 2015, and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of XX % during the forecast period of 2016-2026.

Once a desired well section is drilled, the drill pipe is taken out and the casing is run in to support the open hole or isolate abnormal pressure zone. After this casing operation, well cementing services are employed for primary cementing job in order to stabilize the casing tube. The oilwell cement is a mixture of cement powder, mix water and cement additives. Cement additives are the most important component of cement slurry as they define the cement properties. The type and proportion of each component used depends on the wellbore conditions and kind of cementing job required. The various properties of cement required to understand prior to any cementing job includes compressive strength, pumpability, slurry density, water loss properties and corrosion resistance. These properties along with classification of cement powders and cement additives have been described in our exclusive report.

There are two kinds of cementing jobs provided by the cementing services:

  • Primary Cementing Job: The objective of the primary cement job is to place the cement slurry in the annulus behind the casing. This job is generally done to isolate zones. The primary cementing job can be done in a single operation, by pumping the cement down the casing, through the casing shoe and up into the annulus. However, in cases of longer casing strings and weak formations, this job is done in two stages.
  • Remedial Cementing Job: This cementing job is done primarily to correct problems associated with the primary cementing job. These problems can be channeling, inadequate compressive strength, etc. The remedial cementing job can be done in several ways after the cementing problem is well analyzed. The remedial cementing job is categorized into two broad categories:
    • Squeeze Cementing
    • Plug Cementing

The strength of the pumped cement is tested after any cement job by the well cement services. The process of cementing job should be done very carefully with the engineer ensuring certain results as identified by the pilot tests on the identical cement slurry. The cement job also depends on several well parameters like well depth, wellbore geometry, bottomhole temperature, formation pressure and formation characteristics. The cement service providers are always involved in providing innovative cement solutions to the operating companies.
