Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What is in your products?

It is the engineering and chemistry behind our products that set us apart from the competition.

Can I pump your products through my directional tools?
Yes. Blockade, F.I.T., and Drill-Seal Fine and Medium are designed to be MWD-friendly. After hundreds of applications through nearly every direction companies’ tools, we have never had one mention of any difficulties with MWD or any other directional equipment after an application of our products.
What concentrations of your products can I pump through my directional assembly?
We routinely pump our material in concentrations as high as 120 ppb through directional tools of all types without incident.
Do you require any special mixing or pumping equipment when performing a Blockade squeeze?
No. Blockade is designed to be mixed in the rig pits and pumped with the rig pumps. We have performed squeezes on every type of land rig, from old compound truck rigs to new era electric rigs without requiring any special equipment.
What is the typical concentration of your products?
Every one of our applications are unique and are custom tailored to each specific situation. We do not have standard volumes or concentrations for any of our products or applications; rather, we provide a specific written procedure aimed at taking all of the variables of your well into account.
Do you send a man out with your products?
Yes. We have highly trained, experienced field service representatives to assist you in applying our products anywhere in the continental U.S and offshore. Although Drillchem products are user-friendly and can be applied without our assistance, we do provide an engineer on our jobs to ensure proper product application and real-time monitoring.
