live cement

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]
A term used to describe a cement slurry that remains liquid but is still capable of thickening or setting to become an unmovable solid mass. Some remedial operations treat the excess live cement slurry with a contaminant to extend the thickening time and allow its safe removal from the wellbore.
