Baroid Bore-Gel®

BORE-GEL® single-sack boring fluid system is specially formulated for use in horizontal directional drilling (HDD) applications. BORE-GEL fluid system is a proprietary blended product using high-quality Wyoming sodium bentonite.

When BORE-GEL fluid system is mixed with fresh water, it develops an easyto-pump slurry with desirable fluid properties for HDD.

Applications/Functions

    The use of BORE-GEL fluid system promotes the following:
  • Optimum gel strength for cuttings suspension and transport
  • Pumpable slurry with minimal viscosity
  • High reactive solids concentration for improved borehole stability in poorly consolidated/cemented sands and gravel formations
  • Reduced filtration via a thin filter cake with low permeability
  • Lubrication of pipe in microtunneling operations

Advantages:

  • Minimizes the number of boring fluid products required
  • Easy to mix and fast to yield
  • Low viscosity minimizes pump pressures
  • Provides lubricity for pulling product line
  • Can be used in Water Wells in unconsolidated formations or when additional gel strengths are required to compensate for low annular velocity
  • NSF/ANSI Standard 60 certified
