Abstract

Additives play significant role in oil and gas well cementing operations. There are varieties of cement additives that have been developed to allow the use of Portland cement in many different oil and gas well operations. In an attempt to formulate the appropriate cement slurry for any cementing job, the right additive must selected and the right quantity must be added. Additives have different functions and are broadly classified as accelerator, retarders, extenders, fluid loss agents, dispersants and many more. Each of the broad classification has different categories of additives that have been developed to perform almost the same function during cement slurry design. However, there some additives under each major type that are commonly used in cement slurry design for oil and gas well cementing operations. This paper reviews the broad classification of oil well additives giving emphasis to the commonly used additives during oil and gas well cementing operations.
