Since its first printing in 1976, Cementing has served as a valuable handbook for new and experienced engineers alike. This monograph presents a review of the technical literature on cementing, along with a discussion of basic principles and techniques. It is designed to provide basic knowledge to those who are not directly involved in cementing and a comprehensive review to those who are more familiar with the subject.
