Hollow Glass Microspheres
BasoSphere™ - advanced technology for low-density cement slurries
With unique combinations of shape and size, as well as lower density and higher compressive strength, our BasoSphere™ product is made of engineered hollow glass microspheres. It offers superior strength to density ratios and prevents fluid loss and formation damage during well completion, whilst bringing numerous sustainability benefits.
BasoSphere™ brings better pressure stability, which can lead to less formation cracking and reduced rework. This in turn leads to resource efficiencies and cost savings.
BasoSphere™ can also bring health and safety benefits - cementing crews are less exposed to dust when using our product, increasing handling safety.
The larger particle size also leads to lower slurry rheology, which means less energy should be required for pumping.
