Lost circulation during drilling/well operations is a well-known global problem. Sever losses during drilling can become a costly, scary and serious problem. QuartzPack™, with its distribution of different size quartz particles, will instantly build a bridge when hitting the loss zone and form an impermeable filter stopping losses. The higher the differential pressure, the harder the quartz particles are squeezed into a fracture, the more efficient is the stop-loss effect.
We then perform a feasibility study and present our findings in a timely manner.
If our proposal matches your needs and budget, we like to meet with you to settle details and agree on terms and conditions for a delivery.
A site visit at an early stage is highly recommended to familiarise ourselves with the infrastructure and collaboration and synergy with your equipment and other service providers.
As necessary we can assist in receipt and QA/QC of equipment and product at port of entry.
Necessary personnel arrive at the well-site to supervise the preparation of the spread, line up of piping and equipment, as required.
We will be present with our field supervisors for assistance and supervision and/or operating the equipment as needed.
Upon completion of the work we advise on verification and monitoring and finalise the End of Job report, present any lessons learned and assist in demobilising the equipment.
Based on my previous experience with (a former employer) the use of QuartzPack™ to temporarily abandon an uncased reservoir section, in a HPHT well (SandAband application), I am convinced that this material is fully qualified as a permanent gas-tight sealing barrier element.
After two years, the QuartzPack™ in the reservoir section was easily circulated out with open-end drill pipe with no sign of accumulated gas or pressure build up. This saved us about a week of expensive rig operations and reduced (removed) the risk of accidentally side tracking compared to utilizing traditional methods
