Pre-job planning based on a risk-based approach can help operators to ensure that zonal isolation is achieved in their wells. In this exclusive video from the 2014 IADC/SPE Drilling Conference in Fort Worth, Texas, Joe Shine, Cementing Technical Manager for Baker Hughes, explains how a new-generation modeling software is using 3D visualization capabilities to help the industry understand fluid contamination. This understanding is expected to also lead to better predictions about the condition of fluids as they’re placed into the annulus.
