The cement sheath that seals your well from formation fluids is, ultimately, an investment in safety and environmental stewardship. In addition to supporting the casing, the sheath offers a sealed barrier that protects the casing from corrosion and underground source drinking water from contamination. Our optimized cement systems and automated mixing equipment enable precise, safer slurries that match well conditions while minimizing rig time.
Baker Hughes cementing experts are committed to superior engineering. Leveraging advanced design technology including the CEMVision™ advanced fluid displacement simulator, we apply high-quality products and additives using high-performance equipment for dependable, long-term cementing in every well, every time. By using the output data identified by the CemVision software—in either 2D or 3D visualization—solutions are tailored to reduce risks of intermixing while incorporating contingencies to meet cement placement objectives.
Scientists at our Technology and Operations Support Center are continuously developing new and more effective solutions to meet your well cementing challenges. Whether you’re working on land, deepwater, arctic, HP/HT, or conventional reservoirs, we consistently have a better approach.
Even as our technology extends the limits of cementing performance, one basic premise defines our success: A good cement job starts with proper understanding of well design objectives and application of cementing best practices, including mud conditioning, job rates, densities, centralization, and other factors that maximize mud displacement efficiencies. These are critical elements for long-term zonal isolation.
Our cement slurry system ensures each design isolates and protects the target zone for the well life. Rely on our field-proven expertise to create a lifelong hydraulic seal.
Our spacer system reduces slurry fallback after placement, which prevents induced losses and eliminates costly remedial cement jobs.
The Baker Hughes MultiBond™ spacer is a stable fluid designed to recover expensive oil- and synthetic-based drilling fluids while preparing the well for cement job.
Our deepwater cementing services ensure safe, secure wells in your deepwater operations. You can rely on our field-proven expertise for wellbore isolation during the asset life.
