Mica Flakes

Mica Flakes|Loss Circulation Material LCM

Description:

MICA is essentially naturally Occurring Muscovite Mica flakes seized in Fine Medium and Coarse grades essentially used in the Loss Circulation applications during Drilling Operations

Common Name: Mica flakes

Application:

MICA FLAKES can be used in water-based and oil based oil-well drillings operations as an Additive mud chemical to prevent loss of circulation and seepage. Mica is specially added to Seal-off the lost circulation zones. The platy structure of mica facilitates the overlapping of Particles to form a layer or wall and acts as a sealant that bridges the openings. The use of Mica helps to seal porous formations and contributes to regain circulation keeping the solids in suspension.

Advantages:

  • Effective Low cost LCM.
  • Does not adversely affect the properties of OBM or WBM.
  • Generally Inert Material with no reactions to Hydrocarbons, acids, Brines.
