Incorporated in 1986 with over 36 years of experience in oil and gas drilling operations, Petrochem USA prides itself in creating cement additive solutions for problematic slurries that deal with water separation and weak formations. Each additive has its own set of advantages that deal with specific problems including density, water saturation, and other obstacles that field workers might encounter. When choosing Petrochem USA as your cement additive supplier, you are choosing laboratory-tested and approved chemical compounds that will ensure positive results for your business. We understand what is needed for cement slurries and how to make them react accordingly using our admixtures.
What is a cement slurry?
Cement slurries are a mixture of liquid composed of cement and water that constantly has contact with drilling operations within oil and gas reservoirs. These slurries are a part of the process of preparing a well for further drilling or abandonment. Cementing, which is the product from a cement slurry, protects and is usually used to seal the wellbore and permanently shuts off water penetration into the wall. Other reasons for using cement for drilling operations in the oilfield industry are sealing off lost circulation zones, plugging an existing well, and displacing the drilling fluids that are still located within the well. One of the most important things to consider is the amount of cement required for the job. Between the displacement fluids, the cement slurries, and drilling fluids; multiple things can happen during the drilling operations that could make it more difficult for the cement slurry to be curated properly.
What are oil & gas cement additives?
Oil & gas oilfield additives are admixtures that can be mixed within the cement powder or dispersed within the water before it is added to the cement powder. They are created to solve unique problems and circumstances in drilling operations where the density ratio is uneven, where accelerated strength is necessary, and when trying to control gas within the wellbore. These are just a couple of circumstances that cement additive manufacturers consider when developing their products. Fully understanding the complete process of drilling operations is essential for hand-selecting cement additives that are designed for deep wells, cold climate conditions, and other factors that can create imperfect curated concrete.
What type of oilfield cement slurries are there?
Petrochem has designed multiple types of cement slurries that were created specifically for drilling operations in the oil and gas industry. Below, please find the additives that we offer:
Antifoam Oilfield Additives & Cement Defoamers - Controlling foaming within slurries.
Anti Settling Additives - Perfect for slurries dealing with water separation.
Chemical Washes & Cement Spacers - Solutions for cementing mud removal.
Cement Dispersant Additives - Improving higher densities that result in stronger concrete.
Cement Extenders - Increases the production volumes of slurries from powdered cement.
Cement Fluid Control Additives - Best for low-density slurries dealing with salt concentration.
Gas Migration Control Additives - Reduces the risk of gas invading the cement.
Oil Well Cement Retarders - Keeps cement slurries in liquid form for long periods of time.
Special Cement Additives- Building comprehensive strength, flexibility, and retrogression.
Thixotropic Agents for Cement- Excellent cement gelation results in better curated concrete.
