Cement is an important component to ensure safe and economic sustainable operations of a well. To optimize the performance of cement in a well, and to achieve an adequate level of well integrity, experimental testing of cement under realistic and relevant conditions is vital. This paper reviews thre...

In permanently abandoned wells, cement plugs serve as a well barrier element that is essential for providing long-term zonal isolation. Poorly plugged wells may provide leakage pathways that pose risks to the surrounding environment. It is well known that the final quality of set cement is influenc...

Well integrity is crucially dependent on the bonding quality between cement and rock. Several studies have been made of this in the past, but none have taken into account that the drilled rock can be fractured and damaged during drilling. Especially a caprock fractured in the near-well zone can jeop...
