Petrochem offers multiple types of cement additives that help make curating cement more efficient and effective especially when performing drilling operations in the oil and gas industry. Project managers and business owners need to adapt quickly with cement to certain temperature conditions within the climate, deliver stronger slurries, resolve free water within the mixture, and several problems like this that prevent concrete from curating correctly. Petrochem offers unique cement additives that were designed for special circumstances including anti settling agents, oil well cement retarders, and mutual solvents made exclusively for the oilfield industry.
Looking to prevent or reduce the foaming tendencies with cement slurries? Petrochem's cement defoamers and antifoam oil additives can be mixed during the cement slurry preparation process for both cement and drilling smudge slurries where foaming presents a problem. Petrochem offers unique cement additives, (liquid additives and powders that were developed for use for foam control in a broad range of petrochemical processes). Oil and gas antifoams and defoamers are very attractive to oilfield cementing companies because they provide long-term stability and offer easy handling under cold conditions.
Are you dealing with water separation within your cement slurries? Petrochem’s anti-settling additives are highly compatible with multiple types of additives, including having positive side effects when mixed with these specific anti-settling agents. Another unique attribute for anti-settling additives are that they increase rheological values providing stability improvement within slurries. They have minimal impacts on the thickening time, fluid loss control, and compressive strength development. They are excellent stabilizers when mixed with other additives and are designed to improve suspension properties for dispersed cement slurries.
Are your cement slurries having issues with mud removal that are causing compatibility problems? Petrochem’s chemical washes and spacers are an excellent solution for mud removal for cementing within the oilfield industry and drilling operations. Chemical washes are a pre-flush system serving as a spacer between the drilling fluid and the slurry that prevents mud gelation. A cement spacer separates the fluid from the slurry and is compatible with oil and gas drilling fluids. Mutual solvents that are designed for the oil industry offer solid dispersions and water wetting in selected surfactant systems.
Need to reduce the viscosity of cement by breaking up aggregates of the fine cement participles? Petrochem’s dispersant cement additives will provide reductions in viscosity allowing mixing at lower water/cement ratios providing higher densities and reducing the water within the cement slurries by making it more proportional. Our dispersants mix at low water-cement ratios and this action improves higher densities and results in stronger concretes. Some of our cement dispersants were created solely for slurries with high temperatures and lower rheologies.
Looking to increase the production of greater volumes of slurry from powdered cement? Petrochem offers many types of cement extenders including some additives created for cementing the conductor casing, some that were formulated for lightweight slurries, and others are just designed to increase the yield of a sack of cement by 250%. Our extenders additives are extremely popular for business owners because they can produce more product out of cement slurries. Other advantages include accelerating the strength development and finding weak formulations within the slurry.
Are your cement slurries losing water and causing issues with developing quality curated concrete? Petrochem offers fluid loss control additives for oil well cement that were designed for particular situations including low-density slurries and when dealing with high concentrations of salt. Added benefits of using these additives are gaining early compressive strength and assisting freshwater slurries that have high viscosities rates. No matter if you are dealing with slurries that are impacted by temperature conditions, these mixtures can assist field workers to create better-curated products from cement slurries.
Are you looking to reduce the risk of gas invading the cement and migrating into the wellbore? In the oil and gas industry, there can be serious problems and failures for completing primary cement jobs can happen during well completion. Petrochem’s cement bonding additives help with premature gelation and failed curated cement due to gas leakages that happen within the oilfield industry. Other advantages to using shear bond cement additives include having slurries that are fully dispersed with excellent fluid-loss properties and adequate thickening times.
Do you need to pump cement slurries for long periods of time? Petrochem’s cement retarders have the ability to keep slurries in a liquid state for such operations as pulling pipe after spotting a cement plug. We are proud to carry multiple types of high-temperature cement retarders, including additives that can handle up to 400°F climate conditions. Some of our products have tri-functional benefits including being a dispersant, a retarder, and the most effective as a fluid-loss additive.
Are you looking to increase the comprehensive strength using cement additives? Is salt concentration making it harder to curate your slurries? Have you ever had to combat strength retrogression? Petrochem’s special cement additives are designed to fit every circumstance that might happen to field workers in the oil-field industry. These additives include fibrous materials that increase stress resistance within 24 hours, a free flow additive that eliminates static electricity, and a Silica concrete additive that stabilizes systems even within the deep wells where high temperatures are a normal condition. We even have cement expanding additives that provide a positive seal to the pipe and the formation which prevents gas migration within the well-bore.
Are you looking for better cement gelation and gaining better-placed curated concrete? Petrochem’s thixotropic agents for cement have multiple purposes in the oilfield industry including sealing off loss circulation zones, repairing the conductor pipe, and circumstances where you need pumpability during the thickening time. Special circumstances might require you to achieve compression strength in three hours; our thixotropic agents can make this happen. Other circumstances might require cement slurries to withstand the weight of other cement at an early age; Petrochem is proud to help fieldworkers make better-curated cement.
With over 36 years of experience with cement additives, Petrochem has designed solutions for all issues that would be concerning a project manager or a business owner. We have a unique variety of products that make concrete better by making them stronger, more flexible, creating additional yield which can be very lucrative for businesses. We know what happens within wellbores, with pipes, with formations, and the conductor. We understand limitations like high temperatures due to climate conditions and long distances that require slurries to stay into liquid forms for longer. Trust a professional cement additive supplier by learning about all of our additives and how they interact with all kinds of cement slurries.
