Class Information
Number: 166/285
Name: Wells > Processes > Cementing, plugging or consolidating
Description: A process comprising (1) causing fluent material to flow into position in prepositioned well conduit substantially to stop flow of a fluid by forming a blocking means in situ, said material being plastic or hardenable after being so placed, (2) placing small particles in a prepositioned well conduit to cause them to form a mass of particles in situ substantially to stop flow of a fluid, (3) placing or forming solid or plastic material in the pores of or spaces in a formation to block them and thereby impede flow of an earth fluid, (4) treating a formation with an introduced material so as to prevent it from shifting or breaking down, i.e., consolidating the formation, or (5) treating a formation (e.g., by heating, etc.) to cause the formation to coalesce into an impermeable or consolidated mass.
