Reduce interfacial tension between water/oil, water/solid, water/air, and other contacting surfaces. Improve air or gas drilling through water-bearing formations with chemical offerings that serve as surfactants. Control filtration and stabilize temperatures. Help modify the relationship between the viscosity and percentage of solids in drilling fluids.
Loss Circulation occurs when drilling fluid flows into geological formations instead of returning up annulus. LCM seal costly loss zones and preserve operational integrity. LCM products are both organic and synthetic.
Free pipe with spotting or soaking agents for all types of drilling fluids. Spotting fluids are water dispersible low toxicity, designed to free differentially stuck drill strings. They do not contain any harmful hydrocarbon additives.
A workover fluid is a fluid which is placed against the producing interval to control the formation pressure during work over operations such as Well killing, perforation, sand washing, water shut off, plug placing, packer job, gravel pack job and installation of artificial lift system.
The act or means of controlling (usually lowering) the volume of filtrate that passes through a filter medium. Control of fluid loss for a mud is achieved by several means, one of which is by addition of fluid-loss-control materials to the mud system.
