the Catalog field. Double-click on an item in any one of the columns
and the selections will again be filtered. As data is selected in each
column the other columns dynamically change to reflect the selections
available. Once a selection is made in all columns the OK button

Import Pipe Tally...

Use the Import Pipe Tally... button to access a list of all available pipe
tallies that can be imported into the Casing report.
Click the Import Pipe Tally... button and the Select Pipe Run dialog
appears. Depending on the data available, Off-Load Tallies and/or Run
Tallies may appear. Select a pipe tally from within the dialog and click
OK. All information from the chosen pipe tally will appear in the
Component spreadsheet. Adjacent Pipe Tally components with the same
properties will be grouped together so that casing components of each
type only are created. The length field will be the sum of the joint
lengths of the adjacent components.

View Component Status Button

Select a Section Type from the Component spreadsheet and use the
View Component Status button to access the Assembly Component
Status dialog.The Status dialog enables the user to document changes in
states of the components throughout its life-history in the Well.
For more information see the Assembly Status Component Dialog topic
in the OpenWells On-line Help.

Cementing Report
The Cementing report is used to record the operations details of each
cement job performed on the well.
Oilwell cementing is the process of mixing and pumping a cement slurry
down the casing and up the annulus behind the pipe where it is allowed
to set, thus bonding the pipe to the wellbore formation and providing
hydraulic isolation. Cementing operations may be categorized as
Primary or Secondary (or Remedial). In OpenWells, three Cement Job
types are supported: Primary, Plug and Squeeze.

Cement Job Type

Plug Cement jobs are performed for a variety of reasons to isolate a
portion of the wellbore from the wellbore above or seal the well for
Primary Cementing is performed immediately after the casing or liner
is run into the hole. Its objective is to provide zonal isolation to prevent
migration of formation fluids in the annulus and help protect the pipe by
safely anchoring and supporting the string. Secondary Cement jobs are
performed after the primary cement job.
Squeeze Cement jobs are performed to force a cement slurry under
pressure through holes or splits in the casing/wellbore annular space.
The slurry then flows into a permeable formation or fracture and hardens
thus sealing that formation interval from the well.

Chapter 4: Reports in OpenWells

When creating a new Cementing report, be sure to select the appropriate

casing string as entered in the OpenWells Casing report. As well as
linking the cement job to the casing string, it also results in a number of
common data items being copied over from the Casing report.

Job Area
Use the dropdown arrow to make a selection for the Job Type field. The
job type selected from this picklist defines the availability of certain data
entry fields and panels in the General section of the Cementing report.
For example, the Plug area is only available for plug job types.

Details Area
Use the Assembly field to specify the assembly that is to be cemented.
A dropdown picklist is available for this field.
If Casing reports have not been created for this Well, only the Open Hole appears
in the picklist. OpenWells populates this picklist by searching the database for the
String Type entries in Casing reports dated on or before the date of the Cementing
report. If the Casing report is dated after the Cementing report, the Assembly Name
for that Report will not appear in the picklist.

Enter all other necessary information in the relevant fields.

Pipe Movement Area

Enter all necessary information to record if the pipe was reciprocated
and/or rotated during the cement job.

Plug Area
This area will only appear when 'Plug' is selected as the Job Type in the
Job area of the General section. Use this section to enter information on
the Plug Type. A checkbox can be activated to indicate that the plug
was Drilled Out, then enter the Drilled Out Date in the corresponding
