Utilizing Wellbore Stabilizing Products

Turbo-Chem is dedicated to reducing drilling project costs for our customers by minimizing risks associated with loss circulation, shale instability, wellbore ballooning, torque/drag and formation damage. Turbo-Chem’s primary objective is to identify the operator’s specific needs, to utilize high quality products to address those needs and assist the operator through our technical applications expertise.

Turbo‐Chem International, INC.’s success originates in quality products, innovative solutions and skilled applications engineers, dedicated to supporting our customers through a highly‐mobile global network of distributors and regional locations. We offer a total wellbore stabilizing fluid additive solution for our customers. Turbo-Chem’s efforts are focused on solving real‐world drilling and wellbore stabilizing problems for our customers. We tailor the solution to the challenges presented and work side by side with our customers to ensure our products and services meet their needs.

Turbo‐Chem International Inc.’s 1500 ft² Research and Development Lab brings innovation, quality and expertise to our customers around the globe. TCI has enjoyed a successful history in supplying quality wellbore stability products to the oil/gas & horizontal directional drilling industries. Turbo‐Chem International Inc. is one of the only independent wellbore stability suppliers with a fully functional R&D / Mud Testing Laboratory on site at its corporate headquarters. TCI’s Research and Development Lab is a ‘built to purpose’ facility, doubling as a laboratory for pilot testing and experimentation.

With a research and development laboratory located at our Lafayette, LA location, we offer a complete facility for testing and developing customized wellbore stability additives for any drilling fluid program. TCI invests heavily in research and development to ensure that our customers can expect leading‐edge quality products. Innovative products such as First Response®, SYN‐Seal™, Bore-Seal 100, EZ Squeeze™ and SwelLCM™ have been developed by our R&D Department.

Research & Development

Quality Control

A quality assurance program is continuously maintained at TCI through the services of the laboratory. A complete line of testing equipment and supplies are stocked and maintained by our Head R&D Technician in the laboratory. To maintain complete assurance and reliability at Turbo‐Chem International, INC., both new and used equipment is completely tested and calibrated prior to all testing. Routine quality control consists of testing our one of a kind Wellbore Stability Products, such as Cellulose Fiber, Gilsonite Resin, High Solids Squeeze Material, etc… per API specifications or comparisons to industry standards. Oil base muds, water base muds and brines are also pilot tested.


Turbo-Chem also offer these additional lab testing services:


  • API drilling fluid testing for water, oil or synthetic based drilling fluids
  • Microscopic imagery analysis of products and formation samples, etc.
  • Micro Trac – Particle Size Analyzer
  • Product comparative analysis to ensure our customers receive the highest quality products
  • Standard PPA testing up to 4,000 psi and up to 500° F
  • Dynamic PPA testing to emulate well bore differential conditions to 500 psi and up to 500° F
  • Product compatibility with special drilling fluids and well bore applications
  • Analytical fact finding to determine cause and effect of problem situations


Each Turbo-Chem employee is an expert in his or her field. We provide the most highly experienced Application Engineers to our clients around the world. We provide engineers for both land-based and offshore-based operations in any country. Our highly experienced and trained Application Engineers provide specialized Wellbore Stability Control services. Turbo Chem’s Application Engineers are critical to the application and success of our products. 



Wellbore stabilizer/ lost circulation material (LCM)

Bore-Seal 100 is a wellbore stabilizer/ lost circulation material (LCM) that creates a fast effective seal to minimize fluid and pressure invasion into the formation. BORE-SEAL 100 effectively seals a wide range of fracture sizes and creates a barrier that allows for overbalanced drilling to continue. BORE-SEAL 100 is particularly useful as a “back-ground” LCM to ensure low fluid invasion across many reservoir types.

Premium Seal

(Regular/Fine) True Cellulose Fiber

Premium Seal is a deformable & compressible micronized cellulose fiber. The graded fibrous particles work together to create bridging action within problematic fractures. Premium Seal’s
unique characteristics will eliminate the
“eroding and washing away” once making
a seal, which is common with generic flake/granular LCM.


Environmentally Safe Shale
Stabilizer & High Temp Fluid Loss Reducer

Turbo-Phalt is low softening point gilsonite/resin blend that will readily tame unstable, reactive shale. Turbo-Phalt will also help seal micro- fractures, while reducing seepage loss and differential sticking tendencies in low pressure sands.


The Next Generation of
Lost Circulation

B.F.S. was developed by Turbo-Chem’s R&D laboratory in line with the Ideal Packing Theory. The coarse particles in B.F.S. will cause a bridge while smaller particles fill the gaps in between and the finest particles will complete the seal inside the fracture. BFS will not “grind” down like brittle generic LCM, which leads to constant treatment, an increase in ECD and
formation damage.

First Response®️

Unique Single Sack Mud Loss Eliminator in Micro & Macro

The TurboChem Family of Products

Single sack precise blend of premium cellulose fiber and sized particulate. First Response is an effective treatment for all losses from seepage to severe. First Response was developed by Turbo-Chem’s R&D Laboratory to address the operators need of solving a wide range of lost circulation issues with a one sack material.


Organic, HTHP Filtrate and
Seepage Loss Eliminating LCM.

SYN-Seal is a single sack, chemically modified resin and cellulose fiber compound that contains no asphalt or asphalt derivatives. SYN-Seal is effective at both low and high temperatures and has a broad application in oil and synthetic base mud systems.

EZ Squeeze

The TurboChem Family of Products

EZ Squeeze is a high fluid loss, high solids squeeze material. A solid plug is formed within the loss zone when the liquid phase is squeezed from the slurry, rather than remaining at or near the face of the wellbore (common with finer particle squeeze material). The wide particle size range of EZ Squeeze minimizes the possibility of the resulting hard plug being removed during drilling operations.


Gelled, Swelling, Sealing Agent.

Used for vugular, massive lost circulation situations as a presqueeze for EZ Squeeze® and also ahead of cement to ensure cement to surface.”
