SNF offers a series of proven cement additives that optimize the performance of Oil and Gas cementing applications. The SNF team has many years of combined experience in a variety of cementing applications across multiple markets. We continue to meet our customers’ challenges with a strong commitment to innovation, performance, and the environment.
Economic drilling of oil wells requires specific properties for types of cement backed by world-class supply chain and logistics. SNF’s years of experience in the development, manufacturing, and supply of polymers to the Oil and Gas industry allows us to offer a series of polymers designed explicitly for cementing applications.
Different additives are often needed as wellbore construction operations go deeper into the formation:
SNF produces a range of specially engineered polymers for water-based drilling fluid systems in powder, liquid, and emulsion forms in various packaging to meet individual needs. Each series of polymer meets one or several requirements, such as fluid-loss control, viscosity improvement, high temperature/high-pressure applications, and shale inhibition. These polymers are produced in a variety of physical forms, molecular weights, and compositions for specific applications.
Cementing Product Categories
|Low molecular weight polymers for improved mixing and placement characteristics together with reducing apparent viscosity and extending set-up time.
Fluid Loss/Gas Migration Control
|Polymeric additives designed to control fluid loss and prevent free gas migration into the cement column.
Free Water/Suspension Additives
|Specially formulated polymers for preventing free water formation and reducing settlement of heavy particles.
PRODUCT ATTRIBUTES INCLUDE:
- High Levels of Salt Tolerance
- Improved Cement Placement in the Annulus
- Improved Adhesion to Casing and Formation
- Improved Density Control
SNF offers assistance in testing cement recipes in both our French and U.S.-based Oil & Gas laboratories.
Whether its Fluid Loss, Set Time, Stability, or something else, SNF has the capability to pre-screen and get to the right cementing additive quickly for the customer’s application.
