Cementing is one of the most important operations in the drilling phase of an oil and gas well and it should therefore be efficiently carried out. The main factors that contribute to an effective cementing operation are cement slurry design, displacement mechanism, pre-job operation and finally the calculations involved. These factors were carefully analyzed in this work. A field cementing procedure of the 13-3/8”and 9-5/8” casing cementation for well “A” was observed, all data from the cementing and casing program, volumes of cement slurry, number of sacks of cement used and cement bond evaluation result were also analyzed as postmortem criteria. From this, a conclusion was drawn that the cementing procedures of the well were of standard which prompted its adoption for other wells. Thus, we present effective cementing practices in this work.
