Case History

FLC 2000® Increased Production in Colombia

Latin America
Challenge
  • An operator in Colombia was drilling through a fragile 8½” reservoir interval. 
Solution
  • We recommended 5-6 lb/bbl of FLC 2000® Wellbore Shielding® additive for the troublesome interval. 
Results
  • No losses observed using FLC 2000. 
  • An offset well lost approximately 400 bbl/hr. 
  • „Caliper and resistivity logs showed a near gauge hole with minimal damage. 
  • FLC 2000 increased return permeability from 89.29% to 98.44% and delivered an in-gauge hole. 
  • Production increased 20% from offset well due to increased return permeability from FLC 2000 compared to alternative fluid.
