How Compressible Cement Slurries Can Mitigate Annular Pressure

Tightness of tubing-casing and casing-borehole annulus remains a topical issue for gas and gas condensate wells both in Russia and abroad. To mention but one example, in the Mexican Gulf 8,122 wells out of total 11,498 have annular pressure. Whether the pressure appears, depends directly on the specifics of geological structure, well design and technologies used in well construction.
