Details

3M™ Glass Bubbles HGS4000 have a density of 0.38 g/cc and an isostatic crush strength of 4,000 psi. The HGS series glass bubbles are designed for low-density drilling fluids and cements used in the oil and gas industry.

HGS4000 Glass Bubbles are designed for use in drilling, completion, and workover fluids, as well as in cement slurries in the oil and gas industry. HGS4000 are well-suited for use in shallow to intermediate depth wells.

  • Successfully and predictably reduces the control fluid density
  • Prevents or minimizes fluid loss/lost circulation and formation damage
  • Incompressible and more homogeneous control fluid properties compared with foamed and aerated systems
  • Eliminates the need for specialized equipment used in foamed and aerated systems
  • Increase yield per sack of cement
  • Eliminate need for remedial squeeze

Suggested Applications

  • Oil and Gas
