Geothermal Paper Presented in Africa

A co-authored Impact Fluid Solutions paper was presented at the 6th Annual African Rift Conference in Ethiopia

The paper, "Application of a Unique Loss Circulation Curing Cement Spacer during Cement Placement in Geothermal Well" details the performance of a uniquely engineered wellbore shielding (WBS) spacer, which has demonstrated its capacity to cure losses with a mechanism that delivers a sealing effect in permeable and fractured formations. The authors described in a case study how the spacer has been used in remediating moderate to total losses experienced in both a low fracture gradient formation and an induced fractured geothermal well in Kenya.
