Advanced flexible cement technology
Optimize zonal isolation for the life of the well.
FlexSEAL advanced flexible expanding cement helps ensure well integrity by resisting stresses encountered throughout the well life cycle.
Unlike conventional cement systems, FlexSEAL cement expands after setting, improving cement bonding and blocking hydrocarbon migration. Designed with a low Young’s modulus, the cement absorbs cement sheath stresses without cracking, reducing the risk of
FlexSEAL cement incorporates particle-size-distribution technology to extend density, pressure, and flexibility limits. It can be used in wells with temperatures ranging from 40 to 482 degF [4.4 to 250 degC].
During placement, the FlexSEAL cement's optimized slurry viscosity and solids volume fraction provide effective mud removal and fluid loss control. After placement, the cement provides low gel strength, short transition time, and high compressive strength.
Hydrocarbon production is a risky business, and nowhere is this more evident than in the deepest waters on the planet, where some of the brightest prospects for the future lie miles beneath the surface.
Expectations are high in the Marcellus Shale. Operators expect prolific yields of gas and legislators expect strict environmental compliance with cementing policies in a trend that stretches across the state of Pennsylvania.
Help ensure well integrity from drilling to abandonment with expansion after setting for maximum bonding.
Marcellus gas-shale trends have transformed the regional and national outlook for natural gas supply and are particularly attractive for their proximity to high demand markets and existing pipeline infrastructure.
