GENERAL INFORMATION

ISO-Seal™ is our seepage loss control additive and moderate loss circulation additive tailored to perform in today’s synthetic base oil fluids and conventional oil-based muds. Although developed with oil and synthetic fluids in mind ISO-Seal™ is compatible and can be mixed in all types of drilling and completion fluids both oil and water based. ISO-Seal™ is a blend of our performance proven surface modified cellulosic fyber technologies and non-asphaltic plugging agents specifically engineered to bridge and seal permeable formations. ISO-Seal™ contains compressible carbon particles that are extremely resilient. The compressive nature of the particles allows them to conform to the fractures and isolate the fracture tips. These properties make ISO-Seal™ extremely effective as a wellbore strengthening additive for building a stress cage. ISO-Seal™ can be used to control seepage in minor to severe lost circulation zones. ISO-Seal™ has minor to no effect on the rheological properties of drilling fluid systems. ISO-Seal™ is effective at reducing torque and drag and increasing lubricity of the fluid system. ISO-Seal™ reduces the potential for differential sticking of the drill string.

GENERAL INFORMATION

For over four (4) decades our team has supplied the oil & gas industry with Ven-Fyber 201™ and Delta-P™ the original premium seepage loss products designed specifically for problems related to highly permeable formations. The Enventives Fyber with a Y Technology is based on our knowledge and R&D from the original cellulose fiber patents to today. Those original patents are the basis for all modern-day fiber LCM products. Only products from Enventives utilize our process know-how and are manufactured by our chemical and mechanical degradation of selected plant cellulose. The extremely fine cellulose fibers are surface modified to produce a novel class of cellulose derivatives having different properties and different functions than most commercially available cellulose derivatives. 

Remedy™ is a one sack treatment system designed to prevent and mitigate mud losses in all types of drilling fluids. Remedy™ can be used alone or to enhance ongoing background treatments of the active system and can also be used with our Ven-Fyber™ products as a fluid treatment system. Remedy™ is also excellent in sweeps for prevention of lost circulation when drilling troubled zones where a more aggressive approach is required or in pills for moderate to severe losses when encountered. 

Remedy™ can be used in a variety of methods for the prevention and cure of downhole mud losses, Remedy™ can be pumped thru conventional downhole tools which allows the product to be used while drilling in standard background treatments for seepage loss. Remedy™ is excellent when used in sweeps and pills for moderate to severe losses.

Background system treatments when approaching troubled zones should be treated with 5-15 ppb of Remedy™ depending on severity of anticipated losses and formation types. Treatments of the active fluid system have been successful in the elimination or reduction of whole fluid loss to thief zones while promoting strong thin filter cakes and enhancing the hoop stress of the weak formations. The Active System can be maintained with 20-30 bbl. sweeps every connection during drilling troubled zone with a 25-50 ppb concentration of Remedy™ to aggressively seal the newly drilled formation and to maintain the background concentration. 

In the event of continuation of moderate to severe losses. Remedy™ can be used as a spotting pill at concentrations of up to 100 ppb thru the BHA preventing costly trips. The Remedy™ pill should be spotted at or above lost zone and allow pill to be introduced into formation via soft squeeze in order to form a concentrated seal which will eliminate losses. A hesitation squeeze procedure can also be introduced by utilizing Remedy™ as a dewatering pill should losses continue. Consult your Enventives representative for additional information and recommendation for using as a squeeze application. 

Remedy™ can be used advantageously in conjunction with our other ‘Fyber with a Y’ products designed for seepage to severe fluid loses: Ven-Fyber™ (fine, medium, coarse), Delta-P™, Delta P-RO™ and Delta P Black™. The Enventives ‘Fyber with a Y ‘products perform better requiring less product in your drilling fluid, allowing your drilling fluid to perform to its fullest potential. Our products have been developed to work in the field not to beat a lab test or look pretty during a sales pitch. 

The proactive, preventative measures to mitigate Seepage Loses and Lost Circulation are often more effective than the reactive mitigation programs implemented after whole fluid losses have occurred.
