NEW PRODUCT LAUNCH: Gilsonite® AquaSol Performs in WBM Like Sulfonated Asphalt, at Significantly Less Cost

May 16, 2016

American Gilsonite Company is proud to announce the launch of Gilsonite® AquaSol – a cost-effective, high-performance drilling fluid additive, effective in a wide range of water-based systems for both low and high temperature wells.

Disperses quickly and easily in water-based muds
Gilsonite® AquaSol is a free-flowing powder that mixes easily through the hopper and disperses with only mild agitation. It is tolerant of contaminants and eliminates the need for additional surfactants or coupling agents.

Gilsonite® AquaSol has a wide range of performance benefits

  • Mixes easily through the hopper
  • Controls fluid loss and seepage
  • Stabilizes shales
  • Prevents lost circulation
  • Strengthens the wellbore
  • Minimizes differential sticking
  • Maintains lubricity in tight formations
  • Compatible with most water-based systems

Get the performance of sulfonated asphalt and pay 25-50% less
Gilsonite® AquaSol performs comparably to sulfonated asphalt at a much lower cost. Plus, since it requires no additional surfactants or coupling agents, it further lowers costs by allowing you to use fewer additives.
