Product Sheet Nanoglue Low-Viscosity Sand Consolidation Bond
Prevent the migration of loose sands and fines from a formation into a wellbore.
SandAid technology is a patented chemical solution that significantly improves sand management and enhances production. The chemical process increases the attraction between particles without imposing damage by trapping formation sand and fines to maximize sand-free flow rates and increase production.
Nanoglue bond prevents the migration of loose sands and fines from a formation into a wellbore. Unlike traditional sand consolidation treatments, which can greatly reduce the original permeability of the formation, Nanoglue bond is characterized by low viscosity that decreases downhole friction, enabling faster injection rates.
