Can you verify on the shelf life of FRACSEAL and STOPLOSS?.
STOPLOSS and FRACSEAL LCM is a stable material and does not have an expiry date. However the packaging can be compromised due to extended exposure to the elements (Ultra Violet Light via sunlight and rain), hence the recommendation in our supplied MSDS, for storage in a covered area is noted. Once the packaging has been compromised, the material can become water logged, clumpy and impossible to be utilised effectively in a field application.
What is FRACSEAL?
It is specially engineered organic fibers to Function sealing any permeability from micro fractures to highly permeable formations such as unconsolidated sand. When mix/added into active mud system and or added into sweep pills and spotting pills, it make filter cake impermeable and prevent any fluid penetrating the wellbore thus making the wellbore stable. Wellbore instability is the result of fluid penetration into the wellbore. This impermeable filter cake also significantly reduce torque and drag, stabilizes shales, coal and unconsolidated sands formation, improve return permeability, no restriction to pumping through any BHA. Packaging: 1 pallet=40 sax; 1 sax= 25lbs
What is DRIL-EZY?
Acid soluble proprietary additive specially designed for drilling through payzone formations and also will provide wellbore stability, it functions in the same manner as Fracseal fibers. Function as: Loss prevention material when mix into active system and can be used as spotting pill, the DRIL-EZY filter cake can easily be removed by peel off (by reversing pressure) or by soaking with acid, no restriction to pumping through any BHA. Packaging: 1 pallet= 40 sax; 1 sax= 40 lbs.
What is the recommended concentration using DRIL-EZY?
10 ppb will give excellent wellbore stability and because of its matrix creating a one way impermeable filter cake it prevents fine clay/drill solid particles from entering the pores as well as effectively seal producing from any losses.
What is STOPLOSS?
Proprietary single sack blend of specialized biodegradable materials. Function: to cure severe to total loss circulation material in non reservoir section, the Stoploss Pill must be pumped through open end pipe or circulating sub or large jets (with minimum port dia: 1”). Also provides near wellbore strengthening capabilities in unconsolidated formations or brittle formations. Packaging: 1 pallet= 40 sax; 1 sax= 25 lbs.
What is SOLU-SEAL?
Proprietary single sack blend of specialized Acid Soluble materials. Function: Loss circulation material for curing severe to total losses also applicable in reservoir section, the SOLU-SEAL Pill must be pumped through open ended pipe/string or circulating sub (minimum port dia: 1”). Packaging: 1 pallet=40 sax; 1 sax= 40 lbs.
How does FRACSEAL and DRIL-EZY (for reservoir) works?
The active containing FRACSEAL or DRIL-EZY works simply by sufficient over balance of the mud weight, it will form a thin and strong impermeable filter cake or it will seal any micro fractures/fractures thus preventing drilling fluid penetrating deep into the formations. Contact of drilling fluid to formations is the main cause of wellbore instability especially chemically sensitive shales and in unconsolidated sand formations the impermeable filter cake will strengthen the formation preventing it from collapse/sloughing.
