Solids Based Pills

Fluid loss control and bridging agents are used as the primary agents in TETRA fluid loss control pills to rapidly establish an effective filter cake across permeable intervals during drilling operations.

TETRA SmartSeal™ Solids-Based Pill

A sized calcium carbonate pill, TETRA SmartSeal pill is used to treat moderate to high fluid losses by sealing the internal surfaces of screens in post gravel pack operations. The base clear brine fluid, polymeric carrying agents, and calcium carbonate particle size distribution are each selected for individual well applications. TETRA SmartSeal pill is used in conjunction with the TETRA SmartSeal pad to provide high bridging efficiency, high return permeability numbers, and maximum liftoff at low pressures.

TETRACarb™ Solids-Based Pills

Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) bridging agents are acid soluble, that effectively bridge and seal formations with low- to moderate-porosity and permeability, while enhancing filter cake characteristics.

TETRACarb™ Pill

The primary bridging agent in fluid loss control, TETRACarb pill rapidly establishes an effective filter cake across permeable intervals during drilling operations.

PayZone® Carb Ultra Pill

An ultra-fine-grind, high purity calcium carbonate (CaCO3) bridging agent, PayZone Carb Ultra pill is used in prepack fluids as a bridging and sealing agent. It maintains filter cake integrity across production intervals while sand control tools, such as prepacked screens, are being used. Sized to flow through prepacked screens without bridging, it is easily removed by acidizing.

PayZone® Carb Prime Pill

A fine-grind, high-purity calcium carbonate (CaCO3) bridging agent, PayZone Carb Prime pill is sized to flow through prepacked screens without bridging, and is easily removed by acidizing.

TETRACarb™ Fine Pill

A select-grind, high-purity calcium carbonate (CaCO3) bridging agent with a particle size ranging from 10 to 500 microns, and a D50 value of 55 microns.

TETRACarb™ Medium Pill

A select-grind, high-purity calcium carbonate (CaCO3) bridging agent with an intermediate-range particle size ranging from 85 to 1200 microns, and a D50 value of 370 microns.

TETRACarb™ Coarse Pill

A select-grind, high-purity calcium carbonate (CaCO3) bridging agent with a particle size ranging from 1000 to 3500 microns, and a D50 value of 1800 microns.

TETRACarb™ Flake Pill

A specially sized calcium carbonate (CaCO3) bridging agent that has the physical dimensions of a flat, sheet like material rather than a conventional, spherically-shaped calcium carbonate.

TETRA SS Solids Based Pills

Made from selected grades of sodium chloride (NaCl), sized salt bridging agents are designed to provide optimum bridging and sealing of productive intervals. They are easily removed by applying under-saturated sodium chloride brine fluid, produced water, or fresh water.

TETRA SS Fine

Used to control seepage, TETRA SS Fine pill has a particle size distribution of 1.0 to 800 microns, and a D50 value of 48 microns.

TETRA SS Medium Pill

Used to control seepage and lost circulation, TETRA SS Medium pill, a select grind sodium chloride (NaCl) bridging agent, has a particle size distribution of 100 to 1,500 microns, and a D50 value of 500 microns.

TETRA SS Coarse Pill

Used to control lost circulation, TETRA SS Coarse pill has a particle size distribution of 1,000 to 10,000 microns.
