The purpose of this study is to develop guideline and decision tree for selecting proper material of squeeze cementing operation as part of permanent well abandonment project in PT XYZ. The existing guideline in oil and gas industry does not cover the detail of cement type selection prior to do squeeze cementing job and this may cause failure in the operation and give the high cost impact due to remedial job. It is expected that the result of decision tree and guideline in this study can be used as a reference for plug and abandonment project in. The method used in this research is by calculating the value of the injectivity factor obtained from field study as a key factor in determining the type of cement for squeeze cementing operation. If the injector factor value is less than 2000 (<2000), it is concluded that G type cement (G class cement) is preferred to be used to isolate the reservoir formation zone. While for the injectivity factor value more than 2000 (> 2000), the reservoir is considered as tight formation and difficult to penetrate, so the use of microfine cement is expected to isolate the reservoir formation zone.
