The IADC Technical Publications Committee will soon publish a new book, “Well Cementing Operations,” which aims to provide an understanding of the science and engineering practices behind well cementing. Besides more basic topics related to cementing, the book also goes into shale fracturing and horizontal drilling technologies, looking specifically at achieving zonal isolation through cementing. Find out more about the book in this exclusive video interview with the author, Ronald Sweatman, principal advisor for petroleum engineering and reservoir development services for Baker Hughes.

The book is expected to be issued soon via the IADC Bookstore.
