Case Study #1

OKC-based Operator
Granite Wash

\

Two wells were drilled east of Canadian, TX on the Wright Ranch.

\

Previous average losses in curve and lateral were 2,500 bbls.

\

1,750 bbl would be considered a success.

Recommendation:

•25 ppb concentration of Tactical Blitz™

•25 bbl sweeps every 180′

Results:

•Due to low ROP of 15’ per hour, Blitz sweep frequency was adjusted to
10 bbls every 45’ or 4 hours, whichever was first.

•Wellbore integrity was improved allowing a mud weight increase to 8.9
ppg to displace a gas kick on the first well.

•Mud loss was 680 bbl and 450 bbl respectively.

Case Study #2

Houston-based Operator
Eagle Ford

\

Low show test (needed 14.2ppg, got 12.5ppg).

\

Expected loss zone in intermediate hole section due to fault.

\

Could they eliminate the intermediate casing string?

Recommendation:

•Spot Tactical Blitz®pill at shoe to build wellbore integrity.

•Run 20-40 ppb, 10-20 bbl sweeps.

Results:

•Formation integrity increased to 14.5 ppg equivalent.

•Minimal mud loss experience due to managing the preventative sweep
program.

•Well was drilled to TD without setting casing string.

Case Study #3

Midland-based Operator
Cline Shale

\

Seepage reached 20 bbls per hour in the curve (8-3/4” hole, 8K’ MD).

\

Concern was clogging the RSS tool (previous products had clogged).

Recommendation:

•15 ppb concentration of Tactical Blitz™

•20 bbl sweeps every stand until losses were mitigated. Then every other
stand.

Results:

•First sweep knocked seepage to 10 bbls per hour.

•Second sweep eliminated the seepage.

•Sweeps were maintained to TD (15,500’ MD)

•RSS tool was not affected.

Case Study #4

Test well in the Northern Marcellus Shale:

\

Previous offset well lost 794 bbls to the wellbore.

Recommendation:

•20 ppb concentration of Tactical Blitz™

•25 bbl sweeps every ±250’ totaling 30 sweeps:

Results:

•Mud loss calculations were strictly downhole (did not include mud loss
over cuttings or shakers).

•The previous well lost 794 bbls to hole, and the test well lost 242 bbls.

•Mud cost was $200/bbl.

552 bbls SBM @ $200/bbl = $ 110,400.00
TOP Products Utilized = $ 26,620.50
Test Well Net Savings = $ 83,779.50

Case Study #5

EOG Midland, TX Division
Lusk Field

\

Expected losses from 3,300’ to 4,600’. TD of hole section was 4,800’.

\

Common result was total mud loss before section reached TD.

Recommendation:

•25-40 ppb concentration of Tactical Blitz™

•25 bbl sweeps every 30’.

Results:

•Section was drilled to TD without experiencing total losses.

•Maximum mud loss experienced was only 15 bbls per hour.

•Cement was run to surface after setting casing with full returns.

•Hole section was drilled in two days.

Case Study #6

Tulsa-based Operator
Haynesville Shale

\

Seepage reached 6 bbls per hour.

\

ROP was 18’ per hour.

\

Lateral was to be drilled 5,500’.

\

All other LCM on rig was used with no success.

Recommendation:

•25 ppb concentration of Tactical Blitz™

•15 bbl sweeps every 180’.

Results:

•Sweeps were placed when seepage was experienced.

•Once sweep was pumped, seepage was completely mitigated.

Case Study #7

Midland, TX – Based Operator
Permian – Reeves County

\

After drilling out the 9 ⅝” shoe @ 9,910’ and getting a 13.5 ppg shoe test, the 8 ½” hole was drilled to 9,963’ where losses began up to 100 bph. Previous average losses in curve and lateral were 2,500 bbls.

Recommendation:

•50 bbl, 65 ppb Tactical Blitz® pill to be spotted at the shoe.

•10 bbl 25 ppb sweeps were recommended every stand while drilling to
TD @ 18,760’.

Results:

•Formation integrity was regained to a 13.4 ppg equivalent.

•Losses were mitigated and the 8-1/2” holes section was drill with
minimal losses.

•Sweeps were placed when seepage was experienced.

•Once sweeps were pumped, seepage was completely mitigated.

•While drilling the lateral, the mud weight was successfully increased to
13.6 ppg.

•Operator commented that this would not have been achieved had
Tactical Blitz® not been utilized.
