SAFE-BREAK MP Filtercake Breaker | SLB


Internal breaker


Expedite removal of polymer-based drilling fluid filtercake

SAFE-BREAK MP internal breaker is used to improve the efficiency of breaking filtercakes from polymer-based reservoir drill-in fluids (RDF), completion fluids, and lost-circulation pills during workover or completion operations. 

The breaker is initially deposited as an inert particle within the reservoir drill-in filtercake. When activated by lower pH, it greatly increases the degradation rate of the filtercake. When compared with a plain acid soak, the SAFE-BREAK MP breaker reduces the time required for filtercake removal by as much as 60%.
