In our HTHP geothermal project we have some very difficult challenges in cementing including slurry design, placement techniques and long term integrity. To date we have dealt directly with single cement vendors but are always limited to what their product range offers and so far have had quite poor results. We are looking for an independent cement expert with both service company and opearator experience and a wide range of contacts to work with us to find solutions industry wide. Does anyone know anyone or any consulting organisations that may be able to help?
Please contact me directly. I can put you in touch with an ex-Shell 40-year experienced drilling engineer that did a lot of geothermal work and has cementing horror stories to match. Just not at liberty to post his details indiscriminately.
