Impact is a recognized leader in Wellbore Shielding® and stabilization, the science behind our FLC® and STAR SHIELD® drilling fluid additives and SHIELD BOND® cement spacer system. These uniquely engineered solutions have proven successful in thousands of wells in troublesome formations worldwide.
In both drilling fluids and our SHIELD BOND spacer, advanced Wellbore Shielding chemistry works the same way: by forming a thin, low-permeability barrier on the face of the formation. This “shield” minimizes fluid and pressure invasion into matrix pores and microfractures to:
- Stabilize and strengthen the wellbore
- Minimize losses and formation damage
- Protect against lost circulation
- Extend the fracture gradient
By preventing problems and protecting the formation, our Wellbore Shielding solutions reduce non-productive time and total well costs while helping operators increase ultimate recoveries.
