Lost Circulation Materials

Lost Circulation Materials (LCMs) are used to seal zones where total loss, seepage or partial returns are experienced. LCM products work by sealing and plugging loss zones, by bridging and plugging off voids or by forming a matrix within the wall cake to create an impermeable filter cake. LCMs will improved borehole stability and deliver significant mud cost savings.

  • AMC BORE SEAL™

    AMC BORE SEAL™ is a cellulose based product that is used to improve borehole stability by improving invasion control, seepage loss and other loss control situations.
    It is available in three grades – (F)ine, (M)edium and (C)oarse. AMC BORE SEAL™ F fibres will matrix within the wall cake to form an impermeable thin skin on the filter bed resulting in minimal fluid invasion into the formation. AMC BORE SEAL™ M & C can be used as loss circulation additives when partial return or seepage loss is encountered.

  • AMC BOS FIX™

    AMC BOS FIX™ is designed specifically to be used in conjunction with the AMC BOS UNIT™ as a preventative maintenance system to minimize borehole torque and fluid losses, while also maximising borehole stabilisation, penetration rates, core recovery and overall productivity.

  • AMC COTTON HUSKS™

    AMC COTTON HUSKS™ are a fibrous material that can be used as a bridging agent or lost circulation material (LCM) in any water based drilling fluid. Depending on the particle size distribution required, AMC COTTON HUSKS™ can be used on its own, or for better performance, in combination with other LCM products

  • AMC DRILL PAPER™

    AMC DRILL PAPER™ is a blend of variable sized particles of ground paper that is applicable for use in all water based drilling fluid systems used to cure lost circulation.

  • AMC PLUG™

    AMC PLUG™ is a polymer in granular form that absorbs up to 500 times its original volume in water. AMC PLUG™ is ideal for sealing zones of lost circulation and can also be used to reduce rod vibration in holes where lost returns are a problem.

  • AMC QUICKSEAL™

    AMC QUICKSEAL™ is a fibrous material used to reduce fluid invasion and lost circulation. It is available in three grades to function effectively over the widest range of lost circulation situations.

  • AMC SAMSEAL™

    AMC SAMSEAL™ is a proprietary blend of inert inorganic and organic components used for the purpose of curing lost circulation. AMC SAMSEAL™ is a combination of granular material, flakes and fibres with defined particle size specially prepared to offer more selection when curing lost circulation. AMC SAMSEAL™ is available in three sizes (F)ine, (M)edium and (C)oarse, the percentage and particle size distribution of each component offers effective alternatives over the widest range of lost circulation conditions.

  • AMC SHUR SEAL™

    AMC SHUR SEAL™ is a blend of variable sized particles of ground paper applicable for use in all water based drilling fluid systems that is used to cure lost circulation.

  • AMC WALPLUG XTRA™

    AMC WALPLUG XTRA™ is a special blend of micronised cellulose fibers designed specifically for preventing and curing lost circulation problems. It can be used in squeeze slurries as well as more conventional LCM (Lost Circulation Material) applications.

  • AMC WALPLUG™

    AMC WALPLUG™ (F, M, C) is made from ground nut shells and is noncompressible, so it can be used in squeeze slurries as well as more conventional LCM applications. AMC WALPLUG™ is available in fine, medium and coarse grades.

  • MAGMA FIBER

    MAGMA FIBER is a specially formulated extrusion of spun mineral fibre. The long, flexible fibres will reduce seepage and lost circulation by bridging and plugging off voids, fractures and all types of permeable formation.
