Vertical drilling products, filtration additives, stabilizers and lubricants for water well drilling
The water well industry requires drilling fluid products that are multi-purpose, easy-to-use, environmentally acceptable and most importantly, effective.
Water Well Filtration Control Additives
Water Well Filtration Control Additives prevent the loss of drilling fluid into the formation, which can cause borehole instability, reduced drilling performance, and contamination of the water source. The use of effective filtration control additives can minimize the risks associated with fluid loss and help maintain a stable drilling environment.
QUIK-TROL® GOLD LV
Barasol-R is a granular, modified cellulose, designed to increase viscosity and improve fluid loss in drilling fluids. The product can be used as a pure polymer system but can also be added to a Bentonite-based drilling fluid for use in Vertical Drilling operations.
When mixed with Bentonite, Barasol-R can improve specific drilling fluid properties such as filtration control. In water sensitive formations, Barasol-R promotes borehole stability, hole cleaning and core recovery. The product’s granular composition makes it easy to disperse and ensures lumps are not formed.
Water Well Clay/Shale Stabilizers
Water Well Clay/Shale Stabilizers help to prevent the destabilization of clay and shale formations, which can lead to borehole instability and other drilling problems.
EZ MUD® DP
EZ MUD® DP is a borehole stabilizing, dry polymer. With its high molecular weight and optimum charge density, EZ-MUD DP polymer provides excellent borehole stability through a coating mechanism (encapsulation).
EZ MUD® PLUS
EZ MUD® GOLD
Water Well Lost Circulation Materials
Lost Circulation Materials help prevent the loss of drilling fluids into porous formations and fractures, which can lead to costly drilling fluid losses, borehole instability, and reduced drilling performance. The use of effective lost circulation materials can help maintain a stable drilling environment and improve the efficiency and safety of water well operations.
DIAMOND SEAL® is an absorbent polymer for lost circulation. The product absorbs hundreds of times its own weight in water. It is intended for use primarily as a lost circulation material in HDD.
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.
Water Well Specialist Products
Soda Ash is a granular powder used to optimize the make-up water that Bentonite and/or polymers will be mixed with. The product will condition and soften make-up water, lower the hardness and increase its pH.
Vertical Drilling Lubricants
Vertical Drilling 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.
