...W.A. Hart; T.R. Smith The key to successful primary cementation is a hydraulic seal in the annulus area to inhibit flow of formation fluids. To accomplish this, all or a large percentage of drilling fluid must be displaced with good quality cement. Placement of cement in the annulus is probably...
