WITH UNMATCHED BENEFITS IN CEMENTING AND DRILLING FLUIDS, GILSONITE IS PROVEN UNDER PRESSURE®.
With a unique blend of strength, flexibility, bonding and high-temperature capability, Gilsonite® adds properties that increase performance in cementing and drilling fluids in a way no other single additive can.
Gilsonite, the recognized industry standard for filtration control, is equally effective at controlling lost circulation and improving wellbore stability.
Gilsonite is naturally better®
This versatile, multi-purpose additive is a naturally occurring hydrocarbon resin found only in northeastern Utah. Gilsonite has significant health, safety and environmental (HSE) advantages over synthetic products. OSHA Material Safety Data Sheets classify Gilsonite as:
Non-toxic Non-carcinogenic Non-mutagenic
Gilsonite requires only standard PPE safety measures.
Strengthens cement bonds to shales and sands Reduces cement slurry density Prevents lost circulation Supports compressive strength development
Drilling fluids benefits
Provides superior shale stabilization Prevents differential sticking Reduces or eliminates lost circulation Provides wellbore strengthening matrix
