Our Ven-Chem™ organo-lignites are a useful specialty fluid loss additive for oil base drilling fluids. Due to their colloidal nature and controlled solubility in diesel and mineral oils, they can be used to control the fluid loss properties of oil base fluids at temperatures up to 500° F and with special application techniques, they have even been effective at temperatures exceeding 500° F.
Ven-Chem™ organo-lignites offer a better cost performance than gilsonite products, asphalt products and oil soluble polymer products. The controlled solubility and no melting/softening point properties of the Ven-Chem™ organo-lignites minimize the amount of formation damage and considerable clean up costs which are normally associated with gilsonite and asphalt products. In most applications our Ven-Chem™ organo-lignites have little to no effect on the rheological properties of the drilling fluid.
Proprietary products that are the original micronized cellulose seepage loss and loss circulation additives for use in aqueous and non-aqueous based fluid systems
Enventives is the unquestioned industry leader in the developing, manufacturing and servicing the best selling and best performing squeeze products available today. Our solutions are designed to solve the most complex loss circulation problems. Our products mix and pump easily, and dewater quickly once squeeze pressure is applied to the lost circulation zone
Seepage Loss is typically defined as small loss of drilling fluid that is less than 10 bbl/hr for oil based drilling fluids or 25 bbl/hr for water based drilling fluids. The cause for seepage loss may be attributed to a number of factors resulting from the drilling operations and/or downhole formations.
enventives offers multiple options to help cure your seepage loss problem. Years of research and development into methods of manufacturing and surface modifying micronized cellulosic fibers has kept us at the front of the pack for premium sealing additives for your drilling fluid seepage loss issues. Most of our additives are a blend of particle sizes and types to promote tough thin filter-cakes.
Moderate Loss Circulation is typically defined a losses greater than seepage loss and short of complete loss of returns. In Oilbased drilling fluids 10-30 bbl/hr or in water based fluids 25-100 bbl/hr would be considered Moderate Loss Circulation.
enventives has been curing loss circulation woes from day one. Through research and development, we have made the best squeeze available even better. Quick-Squeeze now mixes twice as fast as the other lesser products on the market getting the best product you can buy sealing your formation in less time.
Severe Loss Circulation is total loss of circulation, while the pumps are running and drilling fluid is being pumped down hole there are no drilling fluid returns observed at the surface.
enventives offers AphronICS for areas with known severe loss circulation. This patented water based polymer drilling fluid system has allowed for the exploration and development of fields that were thought to be unproduceable due to severe thief zones. In areas were conventional fluids can be successfully run our proven squeeze and plug products can quickly get you back to drilling ahead when complete losses are encountered.
Enventives offers our patented innovative drilling fluid technology that incorporates uniquely structured micro-bubbles called Aphrons. Aphrons serve as a first line of defense to prevent leak-off during the initial invasion period after a drill bit cuts into rock. Our AphronICS™ technology has highly successful field proven capability in drilling depleted reservoirs and other low-pressure or permeable formations by solving many issues such as fluid loss control, formation damage, differential sticking and stabilization of multi-pressure sequences with one fluid. The AphronICS™ drilling fluid reduces whole mud loss and minimizes collateral damage to high-permeability porous reservoirs. is the wholesale manufacturer and original developer of the Aphron technologies.
The Aphron Systems are unique drilling fluid systems capable of delivering solids free invasion control through severe thief zones enabling the production of previously unexplorable reservoir formations. Using microbubbles called “aphrons” the fluids create a system with hydrostatic pressure slightly above formation pressure, directing energy away from the formation and becoming a barrier separating the formation from the borehole pressures.
Our patented poly hydroxy silicate technology developed to provide increased borehole stability and superior hole cleaning. Ven-BHC is a low-cost and superior replacement for any MMO/MMH Fluid Systems.
A primary reason for using a Ven-BHC System is first & foremost hole-cleaning. The Ven-BHC Fluid is also by nature very “thixotropic”, meaning that when the mud is static, it very rapidly thickens . But, when the mud is dynamic or moving, it rapidly thins (almost water like). Superior hole cleaning, enhanced ROP and reduced downtime make the Ven-BHC Fluid a go-to solution.
Fluid loss additives are typically designed to lower the volume of filtrate (liquid phase of a drilling fluid) that passes through the filter cake and into the reservoir formation creating the potential for formation damage.
enventives offers a line of products for oil/synthetic based fluids and a line for water-based fluids specifically engineered to reduce fluid loss to the formation. The Ven-Chem line of products is our Oil-based/Synthetic based line of fluid loss reducing additives. Ven-Chems offer similar HTHP filtrate reduction as gilsonite products and are non asphaltic with no melting point. Ven-Chem products do not soften and pose the potential to cause formation damage. Ven-Rez II is our very popular resinated lignite offering which has superior HTHP filtrate reduction in water-based fluids.
Our specially designed lignite products for use in aqueous fluid systems provide improved filtration control, thinning, and stabilization of rheological properties. Enventives offers a number of uses of lignite and its derivatives as fluid loss additives in drilling fluids. Our laboratories have been at the forefront of Research and Development of these technologies.
Enventives is one of the few suppliers in the world with mass production capabilities for a variety of proprietary products, including organophilic-lignites and specialty fybers, designed specifically for today’s oil & synthetic based drilling fluids.
Enventives provides a line of water based drilling fluid systems and components to meet our customers growing needs for high performance aqueous based fluids.
Enventives incorporates our originally patented novel technology to micronize and surface modify any type of cellulose. Our VEN-FYBER™ products are in use all over the globe due to superior performance and our unique approach to the technology. The enventives laboratories are where the initial concepts and application techniques for seepage loss additives were developed. Our technology is utilized in seepage loss additives, severe loss circulation additives, squeeze products and has pill and sweep applications.
A wide variety of solutions for common, to not so common challenges in today’s oil and gas environment. At enventives our dedication to continual improvement and our desire to provide our customers with unique solutions and the highest performance products available have enabled us to develop and offer many specialty products. Some of these products are a natural evolution from the research and development of our other products. Some have been special product solutions requested by customers or the industry. Some are the result of creative minds at work in the enventives laboratories. All are a result of our passion for the technologies we have developed, studied and strive to continually enhance through technological advancements.
As the drilling, completion, and production technologies are ever changing, lube requirements must evolve with the changes. Complex lubes, in many cases, are required and demanded for getting the results required in the complex fluids and environments that are present in today’s fluids. Due to the rapid change in various lube requirements, improved lube technology has proven that they can contribute to the success of a project. Enventives has developed a series of lubes that meet the demands of today’s drilling, completion, and production requirements. Each lube is specifically formulated for each type of fluid being used and friction being encountered.
Bore Hole Stability is an Open Hole Intervals ability to maintain it’s gauge size and shape and to maintain it’s structural integrity. Causes of Bore Hole Instability may be Mechanical failure caused by in-situ stresses, erosion caused by fluid circulation, or chemical interaction between the well-bore fluids and the formation.
enventives has bore hole stability in mind when developing all of our products and fluid systems. We use raw materials to aide in the prevention of stress cage failure, we choose additives to minimize reactivity with formation geology. We know that a healthy and stable well-bore makes for a more productive well-bore.
