Project Objectives

The objective of this project is to develop a new technology to control, design and characterize a superior oil well cement with unprecedented physiochemical properties. The proof-of-concept prototype will be tested against API standards to ensure technical and economic viability. This work is expected to significantly contribute to cost-efficiency and risk reduction over the productive life of the wells while improving the overall environmental safety and protection for Small Producers specifically, and unconventional and deep-water producers generally.
