Cementing is a major factor affecting the integrity of a well for its entire life. Proper cement bonding to the casing and formation is a key measure of well integrity. Unlike most drilling related activities, the cement placed into wells must remain competent for the entire life of the well and beyond to ensure no fluid leakage even after the well has been abandoned.
