Joint Industry Project (JIP) on optimizing displacement efficiency for cementing operations

In October 2019, Pegasus Vertex, Inc. (PVI) kicked off the Joint Industry Project (JIP) to study and optimize displacement efficiency (DE) for cementing operations. On December 3rd, 2020, PVI held the first mid-term virtual JIP forum. 20 people in 8 companies/universities from 4 countries joined the meeting. On September 17th, 2021, PVI held the second online JIP forum. 12 participants from 8 companies joined the meeting. 5 presentations were given during the meeting, covering project reviews, lab tests, models, and case studies.

During this 23-month project, PVI and Université Laval accomplished the following tasks:

Literature Reviews 198 Papers (80 SPE)
Lab Tests 448
Case Studies 1,003
Software Modeling CFD and In-Pipe Flow

The JIP concluded as of September 2021. We appreciate all participants and believe that we have achieved our goals. The updated CEMPRO+ version that takes into account the JIP research and lab tests, and CFD inclusion will be available in the near future.
