Jump to navigation Jump to search

A recompletion technique in which cement is injected down the tubing and through a punched hole in the tubing to form a 300 to 500 ft thick seal between the tubing and the casing, often far about the bottom of the well. Useful for isolation of upper zones to shut-off unwanted fluids or separate producing horizons.
