Loss circulation material
A S Harrison & Co is the proud distributor of The Strata™ LCM brand name to address various loss circulation scenarios.
Strata™ LCM provides its clients with a comprehensive program of Mud/ Fluid Loss prevention, remediation of minor losses, and in the case of severe losses, an industry-standard cure which is designed to address various potential problems, either known or anticipated.
Strata™ LCM work to minimise the total cost to the operator by designing products, which reduce the need for alternatives and improve on necessary handling procedures.
FRAC-ATTACK® allows heavier mud weights to be pumped as well as withstand formation pressures. It has also been proven effective in controlling underground cross flows and blowouts.
One of the most reliable LCM products available is Strata Vanguard®. Strata Vanguard® is a multi-purpose blend of specific sized particulates that were specifically developed as an effective means to prevent lost circulation. Vanguard easily mixes with all drilling fluids and is recommended for use to seal severe to total loss situations.
In situations where fluid loss is isolated, remedial treatments such as hesitation squeeze use high-concentration lost circulation material (LCM) pills to seal fractures or micro-fractures. The purpose is to create a temporary bridging agent while drilling continues. However, in these remedial applications, the seals are not always strong enough to withstand the significant pressures coming from both sides of the wellbore.
For the above reasons, A S Harrison & Co offer the RediSeal high fluid loss squeeze pill application.
- Forms a tighter seal in order to produce a significant decrease in leak-off.
- Viable and cost-effective method
- Improves the compressive strength of the filter cake, thereby increasing leadoff hesitation
On average, compressive strength on these filter cakes is about 150-400 psi.
