GLM Creations has available patent pending systems and methods for facilitating the setting of cement for casing a wellbore. Electrically conductive nanomaterial in the cement is heated by the application of energy – inductively, magnetically, or using microwaves – which hastens the setting of the cement. Once the cement is set, by again applying energy to the nanomaterial, the casing, the fluid in the casing, or the earth around the wellbore can be heated.
Materials that can be heated include cements, drilling fluids, fracturing fluids, epoxies, and polymers. Electrically conductive material other than nanomaterial may be used in the methods of these inventions.
