High-performance water-based drilling fluid system
Reduce torque, drag, shale swelling, and dispersion in environmentally sensitive shale.
AcreteBlok antiaccretion additive is specially designed to prevent bit balling and accretion on the stabilizer and drillstring in the HydraGlyde Optima flexible high-performance water-based drilling fluid system. It coats drill cuttings and metal surfaces to reduce the sticking tendency of hydratable as well as dispersible shales. Preventing accretion and balling with AcreteBlok additive makes trips easier while reducing the risk of hole packoff.
Typical concentrations of AcreteBlok additive range from 3% to 9% by volume, which also reflects the flexibility of the system, enabling it to be designed for each well's needs.
