An inexpensive product to: Improve Production Reduce Drilling Time
The presence of microfractures is now recognized as a common cause of severe wellbore instability, particularly in ultra-low permeability rocks such as shales and some limestones.
An additive must be present in the mud system at all times so that microfractures are contacted immediately the drill bit exposes to them. They will not be effective if used as a pill treatment to stabilize a formation that has already begin to fail.
