In this article, we are going to explain the uses of Gilsonite as one of the drilling fluid additives ( gilsonite drilling mud additive) and gilsonite cement additive.

But before that, you need to know what is gilsonite ?

gilsonite or natural asphalt also known as uintahite or asphaltite . it is a solid, black, and glossy material composed of large amounts of carbon and hydrogen . with minor ratios of sulfur, nitrogen and oxygen . Research has shown that natural asphalt is of better quality than other types of bitumen. It is also known as an amazing mineral due to its gilsonite uses .

Gilsonite has been used for many years as one of the drilling fluid additives oil and gas .

natural bitumen has unique properties such as:

Low specific gravity, particle size distribution, impermeability, corrosion resistance

Chemical immobility and lack of water.

As a result, its use creates a slurry with the following properties:

Exceptional bridging, compatibility with other drilling fluid additives

Low weight of slurry and relatively high compressive strength compared to other slurries of the same weight.

gilsonite in drilling fluids is certainly important for controlling fluid loss as FLC. So it acts as a shale inhibitor. This loss of self-control increases fluid viscosity.

 

natural asphalt as one of the drilling fluid additives prevents damage to sensitive devices. It also reduces the problems of clogged pipes by forming a thin wall. Gilsonite is very important as a drilling fluid additives and drilling mud additives . Because they reduce the heat of drilling . It also lubricates the drill. Drilling mud causes severe damage to wells and drilling operations .

These include pipe blockage, drilling wells, loss of drilling volume, loss of time and cost of $ 50,000 per day.

Engineers around the world are now using gilsonite drilling mud additive in oil-based gas systems . In drilling deep wells, sometimes large cracks are created. So the resistance of the well is reduced. This causes the well to collapse . One of the Gilsonite uses in this section is that adding it to oil well cements can reduce the weight of the slurry . It also makes it resistant . As a result, it seals cracks and fractures .

The Gilsonite applications in developed countries are diverse and lucrative. So it has to be introduced

 

Advantages of gilsonite in drilling fluids

 

  • It is used in sensitive areas
  • Avoid damaging radial drilling parts
  • Cleans the surface of the wells and removes sludge
  • Prevents bullets or heavy soil compounds
  • Controls fluid loss and seepage
  • Stabilizes shales
  • Prevents lost circulation
  • Promotes effective filter cake development
  • Minimizes differential sticking
  • Performs in oil- and water-based drilling muds
  • Strengthens the wellbore to increase wellbore stability
  • Performs in HP/HT environments
  • Minimizes HSE risks
  • Ability to work in very high temperature environments (high softening point between 175 and 235 degrees Celsius)
  • Prevent damage to drill parts
  • Prevent oil-based drilling mud from sticking
  • Polishing the surfaces of drilling wells and removing excess flowers and drilling sludge
  • Prevent pelleting or massing of rocky soil compounds

 

gilsonite in drilling fluids and gilsonite drilling mud additive strengthens the well wall

 

HP / HT wells, shales and pressurized areas need drilling fluids. So engineers are looking for well reinforcement techniques . Adding Gilsonite to an OBM, SBM or WBM strengthens the well by:

 

  • Reducing pore pressure transmission and sealing micro-fractures in shale and low-porosity sands
  • Developing effective filter cake
  • Keeping interbedding formations intact
  • Preparation of “smear effect”. As a result, gilsonite in drilling fluids creates a continuous protective sealant along the well wall

 

Significant cost benefits

Compared to alternative products, gilsonite in drilling fluid offers better performance at a much lower cost.

 

In water-based mud (WBM) applications

 

Gilsonite’s performance is compared to that of desirable sulfonylite asphalts. While it costs 25-50% less.

In HP/HT environments using synthetic-based mud (SBM)

The use of Gilsonite reduces the cost by more than 80% compared to premium copolymers.

So, the high softening point of Gilsonite also leads to a 45% reduction in fluid loss.

health advantages Gilsonite as one of the drilling fluid additives over synthetic products

> gilsonite in drilling fluids and gilsonite drilling mud additive is:

– Non-toxic (unlike coal or fly ash)

– Non-carcinogenic

– Non-mutagenic

> No extreme safety measures are needed to

 

gilsonite cement additives :

Engineers need low-density, low-density cement mortar to drill wells.. With the use of gilsonite cement additive , the quality of work in well cementing operations increases. As a result, drilling companies are now using Gilsonite as one of the cement slurry additives .

 

Advantages of Gilsonite as a cement slurry additives

  • Increases yield
  • Reduces slurry weight
  • Controls free water
  • Lowers slurry water ratio
  • Promotes favorable rheologies resulting in lower ECDs
  • Prevents lost circulation
  • Scours wellbore/enhances mud removal

 

Gilsonite cement additive :

  • Maintains compressive strength, unlike coal or fly ash
  • Increases flexibility
  • Reduces cracking
  • Heals microfissures
  • Reduces permeability
  • Strengthens bond to the formation and the casing
  • Reduces environmental risk
  • Assures zonal isolation
