Impact pioneered the science of Wellbore Shielding®, the proprietary chemistry at the core of our FLC® and STAR SHIELD® fluid additives and SHIELD BOND® cement spacers. Traditional approaches to wellbore instability focus on remediation after fluid loss and formation damage begin. Our preventative approach reduces non-productive time and total well costs while helping to increase ultimate recoveries.
Shielding particles in our additives and spacers form an ultra-low permeability barrier at the fluid/rock interface. This thin, flexible “shield” minimizes fluid and pressure invasion in fragile and fractured formations, quickly sealing pore throats and microfractures to:
In reservoir drilling applications, Wellbore Shielding helps to enable unobstructed production flow throughout the life of the well. The shielding barrier:
SHIELD BOND® is specially formulated to allow cement circulation to the programmed top of cement (TOC) where the equivalent circulating density (ECD) window is tight, or in fragile and fractured formations.
