Economical slurry extender for selected applications
Halliburton LIGHT cement (HLC) is a versatile, economical filler cementing composition that provides a high-yield, low-cost alternative for permanently sealing zones where slurry design is not a critical factor.
Without formulation changes, HLC can achieve slurry densities between 12.4 to 13.6 lb/gal in standard or premium cements. When used with standard-fine or premium-plus cements, HLC can provide densities between 12.4 to 12.8 lb/gal. At higher densities, the resulting slurries provide high strength. At lower densities, they provide high yields without excessive free-water separation. When mixed with Gilsonite, HLC becomes an effective, low-cost material to control lost circulation.
Features of Halliburton LIGHT Cement include:
- Settings that can be accelerated with calcium chloride, low concentrations of salt, or seawater
- Easily and economically retarded with Halliburton retarders.
- Miscible with a wide range of mix waters without excessive free-water separation
