Horizontal directional drilling viscosifiers, filtration additives and lubricants
A premium drilling fluid is a crucial insurance and an indispensable part of a trouble-free HDD operation.
HDD Filtration Control Additives
HDD Filtration Control Additives prevent the loss of drilling fluid into the formation, which can result in borehole instability and decreased drilling performance. By using effective filtration control additives, HDD Operators can minimize the risks associated with fluid loss and maintain a stable drilling environment.

HDD Lost Circulation Materials
HDD Lost Circulation Materials prevent the loss of drilling fluids into porous formations and fractures. By using effective lost circulation materials, HDD operators can reduce the risk of costly and time-consuming drilling fluid losses, maintain borehole stability, and increase drilling performance.
Cebo F-SEAL is an acid-soluble, fibrous lost circulation material, composed of synthetic resin-bound stone wool. Cebo F-SEAL is used as an additive for preventing and resolving loss of circulation in concentrations of up to 20 kg/m³.
The product’s fibrous composition builds a structure against high-permeable formations on which a Bentonite fluid can create a filter cake; this effectively prevents drilling fluids from seeping into the surrounding formation. Cebo F-SEAL is an inorganic, non-fermenting product and can be easily mixed.
HDD Lubricants reduce the friction and wear between the drill bit and the borehole, which can lead to decreased drilling performance and equipment damage. The use of effective lubricants can help extend the life of the drilling equipment, improve drilling efficiency, and reduce downtime.
