Lost circulation control treatment
Increase the effective solid volume fraction of carrier fluids such as muds, spacers, and cements.
Liquid thixotropic agent
D111 is a liquid thixotropic additive that helps manage lost circulation during cementing from offshore platforms or any other location where the handling of solid additives is impractical.
Because it can be easily used with any portland cement, D111 improves performance and reliability as compared with conventional thixotropic additives that perform poorly in cements that have C3A content of less than 5%.
Another advantage of using D111 is that it delivers higher early and ultimate compressive strengths as compared with those attained using conventional thixotropic additives based on gypsum. Reduced gelation time and increased gel strength can be achieved by adjusting the D111 concentration.
