We strive to build strong client partnerships by working together with our customers to deliver proven solutions to help them achieve and maintain a competitive edge.
For Mining, Demolition and Construction
ProTerra RS works in a wide variety of applications due to the flexible nature of the product. Composed of E-2 with a catalyst, BN-1 Gel, ProTerra RS can be used as a liquid, paste or putty, depending on where it needs to be placed. The BN-1 Gel content can be altered to manage the speed of the reaction. The addition of the BN-1 Gel also enhances the effects of the product expansion, helping to gain expansion stress exceeding 36,000 PSI.
Mud Additive for Oilfield
Finally, a product that does not disturb the emulsion balance! Lower loadings with our LCM can achieve a two-phase system with a crosslinked high viscosity phase distributed within an otherwise undisturbed mud system. In addition, the formation of the second phase can be delayed for minimal impact on circulating pressure. In the pill application the same delay can be introduced allowing an extremely high viscosity pill to be displaced at lower pressure which only builds viscosity when it reaches its target. This is the unique aspect of our patented product. Additionally, replacing quicklime with our E2 allows greater control over a reduced exothermic reaction.
Temporary and Redrillable Well Abandonment Plug
Utilizing the same formulation as the LCM/Mud Additive, the mixture is pumped without dilution into the mud system through the drilling rig or coil tubing unit pump (as opposed to a separate cementing unit, although that is another viable option). In addition to the BN-1 and E-2, our patented BN-Lock is added in various concentrations to meet the desired compressive strength for the application. The BN-Lock is curable and activates at a target temperature (currently 120° F), which prevents it from solidifying the compound before it is deployed. Exact concentrations of BN-Lock are still being evaluated and will vary based on desired compressive strength (usually set by the desire for directional drilling to be initiated at the plug), but are generally designed to mimic the mechanical properties of brittle shales. The Temporary/Drillable Plug material is also being evaluated for possible application as a cement alternative for surface and intermediate casing and liners. In this application, the material could be deployed via drilling, coil tubing, and workover rig, eliminating the need for a dedicated cementing crew.
Permanent Well Abandonment Plug
Utilizing the same formulation as the Temporary/Drillable Plug Material it is to be used in concert with a mechanical plug to increase resistance to gas migration, etc., but has increased concentrations of our BN-1Gel and patented BN-Lock to allow the final reacted product to bind to formation and solidify into a gas and fluid-impermeable barrier. The ability to drill through the reacted product is not a concern as it is for permanent abandonment. The system is designed to be able to be pumped through a drilling, coil tubing, or workover (service) rig pump, as opposed to a dedicated cementing unit (although that is still a viable deployment option). Compressive strength guidelines are still supplied which dictate the exact formulation; however, the ability to bind to formation and prevent the flow of gas or fluids is the primary specification.
Casing and Tubing Patch
Utilizing the same modified E-2 product coupled with our exclusively designed BN-Lock component , a mixture of oxidizing additive and water is first pumped down into the leak at low rate to deposit the product inside the leak. Next, the BN-Lock is pumped down which immediately solidifies when it comes into contact with the oxidizers. In cases where fluid cannot be moved through a leak at consistent rates, the leak can first be isolated by plug/packer, and then a diluted blend of our BN-Lock can be spotted across the interval. Once the BN-Lock is across the leak, the packer is set and pressure is applied to the tubing, forcing the liquid BN-Lock through the leak. Due to the small size of such a leak, oxidizing catalyst is not necessary for additional strength.
Advantages over existing competing solutions: BN-Lock is water soluble, and therefore does not require solvents or other hazardous fluids to be used in cleanup after the job. The viscosity of BN-Lock can be decreased by dilution with water, allowing deployment/penetration through much smaller holes/cracks/thread leaks than existing technologies.
This product is by special order only and is used before cementing where high losses are anticipated. The zone is pretreated with our patented BN-lock. Adding our proprietary BN-Lock blend makes it resistant to leakoff that will cause immediate crosslinking and curing of cement upon contact. Additionally, BNT E-2 can be added into the cement slurry at a rate determined through pilot testing with your preferred cement. When the cement is pumped the E-2 will catalyze with the BN-Lock, forming a solid bond with the zone, effectively stopping losses. This system can be used for remedial cementing.
