Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: In the petroleum industry, Portland cement is used as a building block in wellbore construction to provide barriers from formation fluid release to the surface and environment. Cement is commonly known for its compressive strength, however, debonding of cement to wellbore casing steel is less understood. In the oil and gas industry, debonding can occur due to shrinking, temperature, or pressure cycles. Numerical models have shown that debonding can occur from the depth of the well to the top of the cement location, creating a complete leakage pathway, which could wellbore leakage. The objective of this research is to investigate the effect of strain rate on cement debonding strength measurement considering the effect of cement curing time.
