High Density Cement Completion


Due to high formation pressure experienced while drilling the lateral section of a Utica well, the customer’s drilling operations required a drilling fluid density increase to 18.5 pounds per gallon (ppg). Calfrac’s experienced personnel were called upon to customize the cement blend, manage the logistics of obtaining materials required to increase density, ensure mud/ spacer/cement compatibility, and safely complete the operation while working in extreme winter conditions.
