Petroleum Well TreatmentDrilling Fluid
There are many instances when there needs to be a built-in delay for chemicals and when their reactions take place - BINDER’s NANO-CAPS do this exceptionally well. The classic example would be a breaker. Breakers are either acids or oxidants that will cause a polymer to deteriorate downhole after the proppant has been placed. If the breaker starts acting on the polymer immediately, the viscosity goal cannot be achieved. Therefore, the breaker is encapsulated in something. In our case, that something is the Nanos.
