Casing/cementing/zonal isolation

This paper presents a laboratory-based study that compares the three methods to measure static gel-strength development that are widely accepted in the industry.
The authors discuss a modified ultrasonic-cement-analyzer (UCA) vessel that allows assessment of slurry sealing performance under representative downhole conditions while running otherwise standard UCA equipment.
In 2022, the topics of the cementing and zonal isolation papers published were generally similar to those presented in previous years. A noticeable departure from previous years, however, was that many of the authors emphasized that their work would result in a reduction of greenhouse-gas emissions.
