This sounds like a class question, so the instructor probably gave you his preferred answer so check your notes.


A casing point for setting the bottom casing should be relatively competent, non permeable, yet porous enough to get a good cement bond.

Formations that are likely to erode, such as salt or weak shales are not suitable.

Formations with other characteristics that prevent a good cement bond such as high pressure zones are not suitable.
