Kenactiv Innovations Inc.
Kenactiv Innovations Inc. says its DrillWall™ drilling mud additive showed up to a 50% reduction in fluid loss in independent lab tests. The company attributes DrillWall’s performance to its ability to create a non-permeable filter barrier (filter cake) more quickly than other mud components, thereby reducing fluid loss and keeping significantly more fluid within the borehole. DrillWall is produced from U.S. farm-grown kenaf, a rapidly renewable agricultural resource, and manufactured in the U.S. In addition to helping lubricate and cool the drill bit and prevent differential sticking, the all-natural, non-toxic additive is also said to be environmentally friendly. www.kenactiv.com
