Bottom Line: However, due to the lack of detailed study of the technique, many questions remain.The priority orders of key factors are: sand grain size, sand coverage, adhesive curing temperature and adhesive curing time.The optimal parameters recommended for application are: 1.6mm~1.9mm sand grain size, 60%~70% sand coverage, 30°C curing temperature and 60 hours curing time.

ABSTRACT
In the petroleum industry, one of the most serious problems encountered during cementing is the failure at the bonding interface. Many measures including casing-sand adhesion have been developed to improve cementing bond strength. However, due to the lack of detailed study of the technique, many questions remain. The primary goal of this study is to investigate the influence of casing-sand adhesion on cementing bond strength, and to optimize parameters. An orthogonal experiment and a supplementary experiment were conducted. The results indicated that casing-sand adhesion can improve the cementing bond strength. The priority orders of key factors are: sand grain size, sand coverage, adhesive curing temperature and adhesive curing time. The optimal parameters recommended for application are: 1.6mm~1.9mm sand grain size, 60%~70% sand coverage, 30°C curing temperature and 60 hours curing time.

Mentions: The cementing process is very important in oil (gas) well construction. Casing and cementing can provide effective zonal isolation of the stratums which penetrated by the wellbore (Fig 1). Leakage behind the casing can reduce the cost effectiveness of the well and may threaten worker safety and the environment. The ability of the casing-cement system to maintain a seal at the casing- cement interface depends on the condition of the casing surface.
