General description of mineral bitumen in cementing
By mineral bitumen doing primary cementing through lost-circulation zones of surface, intermediate, and production pipe in both single and multiple stages as well as various remedial jobs such as squeezing, le-cementing above inadequate fill-up, and plugging back to re-establish drilling-fluid circulation.
Designed primarily as a combination low-density, lost-circulation slurry, mineral bitumen has yielded excellent results In areas of incompetent formations as well as in other types of lost-circulation zones Field results generally show that fill-up of 80 to 90 percent can be obtained in areas where only 50 to 60 percent fill-up was possible with other types of slurries.
Property of mineral bitumen
The unique properties of mineral bitumen such as low specific gravity, particle-size distribution, impermeability, resistance to corrosive fluids, chemical inertness, and low water requirements result in a slurry having exceptional bridging properties, low slurry weight, compatibility with other slurry additives, and relatively high compressive strength when compared to other slurries of the same weight.
Select of material use in cementing
As the oil-producing industry has continued to grow, the need for a low-density cementing slurry possessing lost-circulation control characteristics has become more and more evident.
This is especially so In primary cementing because of the different types of formations being encountered and the need to reduce remedial cementing operation These problem formations may range from either porous or cavernous formations to very weak formations that are unable to support the hydrostatic head that is necessary for drilling and well completion.
Formation and deformation
latter type of formation will often break down or fracture under hydrostatic loading, resulting In partial or complete loss of circulation.
In the meantime lost-circulation zones encountered during drilling operation may produce many problems In the normal course of completing a well. Increased expenditures can result from reduced drilling finishing jobs, and other mechanical difficulties as well as from loss of large volumes of drilling fluid .
Sometimes severe lost-circulation problems may even cause abandonment of a well. Lost circulation during cementing operations will often be reflected by inadequate fill-up In the annulus and the consequent displacement of slurry into formations away from the well bore.
Also satisfactory isolation of the different formations may then require re-cementing work above the point of loss and subsequent squeeze-cementing jobs.
