The primary objective of this proposal is to study "fitness for service" of the sealing assemblies and cement systems in shallow well designs by conducting scaled laboratory testing, leakage modelling and risk assessment. This project will conduct research to assess best practices and develop recommendations to BSEE and industry on the development of industry standards, regulations, and operational procedures to ensure that current cement system and sealing assemblies are "fit for service" to minimize Loss of Well Control incidents in shallow offshore applications.
