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:
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
