Abstract

Comparative Study of Local Cements with Imported Class G Cement at Different Temperatures for Oil Well Cementing Operations in Ghana

Broni -Bediako E, Joel OF and Ofori- Sarpong G

The purpose of this research is to determine the suitability of local cements as an alternative to imported class G cement at different temperatures using oil well cement additives. Laboratory investigations on both local and imported cements to determine physical properties such as thickening time, fluid loss, compressive strength, free fluid and rheology were conducted at bottom hole circulating temperature of 27°C (80°F) and 66°C (150°F). The results indicated that locally manufactured cements are compatible with oil well cement additives at 80°F and 150°F and can be used as an alternative to imported class G cement in oil and gas well cementing operations. However, premature gelations of test results were phenomenal at 66°C (150°F) for the entire locally manufactured cements especially sample CEM B. Therefore, for local cements to be used effectively for cementing high temperature operations, stringent quality control during their manufacturing process is imperative.
