Reduce need for multistage cement operations

With its exceptional set-cement properties in compressive strength and permeability, LiteCRETE lightweight cement slurry eliminates stage cementing in long intervals while achieving exceptional perforation quality without compromising cement integrity. The slurry is also applicable for hydraulic fracturing treatments. Using lightweight, high-strength LiteCRETE slurry for kickoff plugs reduces cement contamination, which often causes kickoff plug failure.

Improve stimulation success in coalbed methane wells

Combining LiteCRETE slurry with CemNET advanced loss-control fiber technology allows cementing the well without losses. CemNET fiber technology bridges the naturally occurring fractures in coalbed methane wells, and the low-density LiteCRETE slurry reduces the hydrostatic pressure, avoiding the creation of new fractures. The combination enhances isolation, improves stimulation success, lowers well costs, and increases recoverable reserves.

Low-density LiteCRETE cement or foamed cement floats on water. After a short period, the high-porosity foamed cement sinks as a result of water absorption.
