Since I arrived here, there has been one job for one client that has been principally under my purview. One big job for one big client that had a lot of people on our side very concerned. Add to that a fair bit of design drama, four major redesigns, no less than six internal conference calls, four pre-job wellsite visits, and a man on the client side who reports to their CEO saying that they considered this a very critical job and you have a recipe for way more e-mails and cooks in the kitchen than strictly necessary.
And now it's done. The cement is in the ground, the right amount is back to surface, the post-job testing looks good and life goes on. You never really know the true quality of a cement job for several years as its main purpose is what we call zonal isolation which should in theory last for the life of the well which is something usually measured in decades. But we've done what we can and we'll get some more information on how well we've done in the coming weeks but at this point we cannot do anything that will change what is downhole.
Now, I can finally move in.
