American Gilsonite
 

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.

Cementing benefits

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

Applications

Gilsonite cementing applications - as a lost circulation material and slurry extender, enhances zonal isolationGilsonite drilling fluids applications – enhances filter cake development, wellbore stability
