Well Cementing Services Procurement in the US
Well cementing is an essential part of the oil and gas well construction process; it is typically the last part of the process before pumping equipment is installed. Well cementing ensures the structural integrity of the well, prevents oil and gas from leaking into the ground and isolates different underground layers. Well cementing results in a cement sheath that holds a casing (the pipe through which oil or gas will flow) against the walls of a wellbore (the hole that is drilled for the well). This report discusses the cement, chemicals and services used with on-shore well cementing. However, this report excludes cement and cementing services used in commercial buildings, as well as offshore products and services.
