Gilsonite fluid loss controller (FLC)
Gilsonite has bonding, adhesion, and filler properties to prevent well structural damage. By creating a physical and chemical bond with the porous formations, Gilsonite provides an effective coating that prevents drilling fluids from penetrating into the cracks. Gilsonite‘s economic efficiency is due to the use of less additives for various applications such as drilling mud. As the only factor with the simultaneous function of ductility and sealing, the effect of Gilsonite on drilling mud can be mentioned that Gilsonite prevents wastage and leakage of fluid, prevents wastage of drilling mud rotation in the well and shale surfaces. Gilsonite is reactive and low reaction, protects even when the well temperature rises.
