MATRIX BITU-BINDER™ DRILLING ADVANTAGE

Matrix Bitu-Binder™ prevents asphaltenes from precipitating from Bitumen. In fact, Matrix Bitu-Binder™ prevents the oil from even leaving the sand particle. Bitumen remains on the sand. This is accomplished with a simple chemical addition to our clay-free polymer based mud system. This is not an encapsulation process.

Matrix Bitu-Binder™ helps to:

  • Reduce hole washout
  • Increase wellbore stability
  • Eliminate the need for expensive Mud Chillers
  • Eliminate accretion
  • Elminate shaker screen blinding

MATRIX BITU-BINDER™ IS COST EFFECTIVE

Since the Bitumen does not leave the sand particle / drilled cuttings, the fluid system can be easily recycled.

Matrix Bitu-Binder™ saves money:

  • The fluid system does not have oil incorporated into it
  • No dumping and rebuilding whole mud systems
  • No storing large mud volume for reclamation or disposal
  • Less water consumption
  • Less abrasive sand in the fluid system resulting in reduced pump wear
  • Effective solids control due to stabilized drilled cuttings
