This paper describes work done in the Bluebell Altamont Field of Northeastern Utah (see fig. 1), with the objective of eliminating poor bonding on liners set in the Wasatch Formation. The Wasatch Formation has posed problems with cementing, as well as drilling, due to the frequency of natural fractures in the zone [2]. The use of Anionic Aromatic Polymers in cement systems has proven to exhibit superior fluid properties that enable the cementing of liners with low pipe to open hole tolerances. The cement systems have also provided improved cement bonding across the Wasatch Formation.
