Laboratory Testing Services
Cement Performance Testing
Cement performance testing includes confirmation testing and qualification testing. Independent testing of cement slurry designs identifies potential issues pre-job, validates the repeatability of test results, and ensures that both client and regulatory design specifications are met. Confirmation testing can be done on pilot blends, pre-job field blends or post-job field blends. Our confirmation testing services have been used by clients to evaluate new cement service providers, spot-check current field slurry designs for quality control and to ensure regulatory compliance. Cement performance testing can be combined with bulk plant auditing and the use of onsite field advisors for a complete evaluation.
Our performance testing services have been used by clients to evaluate new cement service providers, spot-check current field slurry designs for quality control, and ensure regulatory compliance. The process involves testing cement blends, ensuring they meet minimum requirements and recommending any necessary design changes through a detailed report to the operator. The laboratory tests performed on the samples include thickening time, compressive strength, rheology, fluid loss, and free fluid. Cement performance testing can be combined with bulk plant auditing and the use of onsite field advisors for a complete evaluation.
Specialty Testing Capabilities
In addition to conventional laboratory testing, our lab personnel also conduct custom-built, large-scale tests. Our lab facility includes a 4,000-ft2 high-bay shop area for conducting large-scale tests.
As part of the progression of technology development from small-scale laboratory investigation to field implementation, the large-scale testing is an imperative part of CSI’s dedication to offering advanced cementing solutions.
Analytical Lab Testing
CSI Technolgies provides analytical testing services for chemical characterization to support stimulation and completions operations.
Chemical Quality Control
Chemical quality control testing is also available at CSI Technologies to ensure that chemical performance meets required product specifications.
CSI offers basic and advanced fracture fluid testing. Services offered include both design work and general fluid testing.
