    Well Cementing | PVI Drilling Engineering Books

    Well Cementing, 2nd Edition, 2006

    Erik B. Nelson and Dominique Guillot, published by Schlumberger, 2006.


    Cementing is arguably the most important operation performed on a well. Well cementing technology is an amalgam of many interdependent scientific and engineering disciplines which are essential to achieving the primary goal of well cementing - zonal isolation. This textbook is a comprehensive and up-to-date reference concerning the application of these disciplines to cementing a well. "Well Cementing" is envisioned as an upper-level university book, as well as a reference for practicing engineers and scientists.
