Slurry design and testing are integral parts of every cementing job. This process is time-consuming and expensive because of the variability of the conditions between wells. Traditionally, cementing engineers and lab technicians used paper forms to record test results. With the introduction of Microsoft Excel®, people began to take advantage of electronic filing. This significantly improved reporting quality; however, what was missing with this approach was management of numerous reports and search functions.

Without an efficient lab database, the following situations could arise: Difficulty in designing cement slurries, waste of resources in having to repeat similar tests, lack of proof when problems arise, and non-standard practices at various labs within a company.

In order to streamline cement lab operations, PVI developed CEMLab, an integrated database management application that formulates slurry, calculates lab amounts for all ingredients (cement, dry and liquid additives, salts and water), generates weigh-up sheets, stores API test results, and generates lab reports.

This software allows quick access to all your slurry formulations and testing statuses anywhere, any time. The advanced search function allows the user to find the formula and to test it quickly.

Q1. How to change the slurry volume for CEMLab calculation?
The slurry volume can be customized for each slurry.
You can open the Setup window by click on the Setup button on the top of any slurry page, and change the slurry volume, say 600 mL. Then please click on the “Save as default” button at the left bottom corner to let CEMLab remember your settings. After that once you create a new slurry, its volume will be 600 mL.
