Halliburton releases new technology to boost wellbore stability

Halliburton Company has introduced the BaraFLC® Nano-1 wellbore sealant, a nanocomposite suspension that boosts wellbore stability.

The new sealant works with Halliburton’s existing water-based fluid systems to create a tighter, more secure seal that decreases fluid loss into the formation.

The technology sealant uses nanoparticles to reduce interaction between filtrate and reactive shale formations, preventing pore pressure transmission. This helps strengthen wellbore integrity, which can extend drilling time and efficiency.

“In many areas around the world, our customers require high-performance water-based fluid systems to maximise the value of their wellbore. We developed nanotechnology that results in a step change compared to conventional sealants and rivals the performance of oil-based fluids, “ said Toby Dixon, Senior Vice President.
