FAZEBREAK Filtercake Breaker | SLB


Chelant-based filtercake breaker system


Delay invert-emulsion filtercake destruction by up to 72 hours for more uniform performance

The FAZEBREAK system uses chelant technology to reverse the wettability of reversible invert-emulsion reservoir drill-in fluid (RDF) filtercakes with unique properties that delay the breaking process for up to 72 hours. This improves uniformity of the removal process and enables placement during the completion—for example, a gravel-packing operation—to save time as compared to a separate filtercake removal operation.

In addition, the system has a near-neutral pH, which reduces the corrosion rate and risks of damage to sand controls screens and other downhole systems.
