RheCon Flat Rheology System Conditioner | SLB


Flat rheology system conditioner

Schlumberger Oilfield Services

RheCon flat rheology system conditioner improves suspension control while preventing water wetting in the RheGuard flat rheology drilling fluid system. It also aids in rheological stability, filtration control, emulsion stability, and improved resistance to contamination.

Formulation concentrations range from 2 to 4 lbm/bbl [5.7 to 11.41 kg/m3], depending on the synthetic-to-water ratio, anticipated temperatures, and solids loading.

  • Fluid conditioner
  • Deepwater and extended-reach drilling
  • Narrow hydraulic windows


  • Reduces surge and break circulation pressures
  • Reduces low-temperature rheology
  • Optimizes rheological profile for improved zonal isolation


For applications in areas where ambient storage temperatures are below 50 degF [10 degC], use of winterized version of the product is recommended.

Concentrations greater than 6 lbm/bbl [17.1 kg/m3] may adversely affect toxicity.
