Casing centralization is one of the key elements to ensure the quality of a cementing job. It does so by preventing mud channeling and poor zonal isolation. While centralizers are used extensively, well problems continue to arise due to poor cementing jobs. The challenge that both operators and service companies face is to choose the right type of centralizers and place the correct amount of them in the optimum position on the casing to achieve a good standoff profile.
Centralizer Placement Software optimizes the centralizer placement, predicts casing standoff and torque and drag for ERD or deviated wellbores. It determines the number and placement of centralizers using one of the four modes: “specify spacing”, “specify location”, “specify standoff” and “optimum” for bow-spring, rigid, semi-rigid, and mold-on centralizers.
With extensive knowledge in engineering mechanics as well as extensive collaboration with centralizer vendors, the software provides operators with the most sophisticated yet easy-to-use solutions to ensure the quality of a cementing job.
