This paper analyses the results of the combined Cement Bond Log/ Variable Density Log /Radial Bond Log (CBL/VDL/RBL) tool run on 10 consecutively drilled offshore development wells by an operator during the 2015/2016 period in Trinidad and Tobago. The Bond Index (BI) is used as a quantitative criterion for measuring cement to casing bond and the VDL/RBL as a qualitative criterion for cement to formation bond. The performance of the wells after perforation is examined with the aim of highlighting the importance of a good cement job for successful production. Cement pump pressure/pump rate/cement density charts are also examined to explain cement job outcomes.
