Lewis, S. J., Davis, J., Roberson, M., Badalamenti, A., Reyes, P., & Roddy, C. W. (2011). IPC No. U.S.Activating Compositions in Subterranean Zones (Patent No. 8083849.)

The present disclosure is directed to a system and method for managing cement in a subterranean zone. In some implementations, a method of cementing in a subterranean formation includes positioning a cement slurry including a plurality of activation devices in a wellbore.
