Cure your lost circulation problems by generating lost circulation material (LCM) downhole so as to be continuously applied. Use our drill string stabilizer to avoid rig non-productive time by always having LCM available.
Drill Cuttings enter the housing and Lost Circulation Material exits the housing. The Stabilizer Blade hold the housing substantially stationary while the drill string turns impellers within the housing to grind rock cuttings into LCM. Th internal impellers slurrify and grind drill cuttings into sand sized LCM sized particles that can immediately seal fractures to stop lost circulation before it worsens.
The pseudo stationary blades of the drill string stabilizer act against the drill string rotated internal impellers to pump and slurrify drill cuttings to prevent pack-offs and generate LCM sized rock particles used to inhibit the initiation and propagation of fractures. Our LCM Generating Stabilizer improves hole quality by packing LCM into fractures to strengthen the well bore and provide low cost insurance against stropping drilling operations to cure lost circulation problems.
Drill sized cuttings enter stabilizer housing and sand size LCM particles necessary to bridge natural fractures exit the drill string stabilizer to allow the mud cake to bridge the LCM filled fracture to seal the point of fracture propagation and inhibit any lost circulation.
An LCM non-rotating stabiliser can be in any configuration comprising, for example, a long assembly shown to the right or a short assembly shown above and below.
Why not grind waste drill cuttings and use them as lost circulation material (LCM) immediately after they are generated before fractures become and problem and cause drilling rig non-productive time (NPT)?
Save money by grinding and slurrifying drill cuttings into LCM sized particles to reduce cutting disposal cost, stop Lost Circulation and save rig time.
All well bores have fractures aligned with minimum and maximum rock stress planes. Filling these fractures with sand sized LCM materials allows filter cake bridging across the fracture to prevent further propagation and strengthens the pressure bearing capacity of the well bore.
