Lost Circulation Materials

UNIVERSAL offers most extensive line of lost circulation materials specifically designed to seal costly loss zones. Our lost circulation technologies include proprietary engineering software to determine the optimal particle size distribution of bridging materials.

We provide basic LCM   ranging from flakes and fibers to specially engineered families of crosslinking polymers designed to plug large fractures. Additionally, our thermally activated gelling agents generate viscosity and develop a gel structure once bottomhole temperature exceeds 1400F [600C].




Bridging and sealing permeable formations in water/oil/synthetic base fluids. It is particularly useful for preventing differentially pipe when drilling depleted zones where high differential pressures exist. Available in Fine, Medium & coarse grades.




Flake LCM for seepage losses and prevention. It is used for preventing or curing formation losses while drilling fractured or porous zones. Available in Fine, Medium & coarse grades.



Granular Lost circulation material.




Chemically inert and thermally stable, effective bridging and sealing agent used in water, oil or synthetic based drilling fluid. Can lower the potential for stuck pipe, control lost circulation and reduce torque and drag.




Chemically inert, sized plugging agent used to bridge and seal porous and fractured formations in water, oil or synthetic based drilling fluid. Can lower the potential for stuck pipe, control seepage, partial and severe lost circulation and reduce torque and drag.




Mixture of selected non-abrasive granular, flake and fibrous material with a unique physical structure and an extensive range of particle size that enhances its bridging properties. It very effective to combat severe lost circulation for water base mud. Will function at all temperatures.




Fibrous, biodegradable material, an excellent bridging agent when large‐particle‐size material is needed. Can be used in any water‐base mud system.



Highly effective, high-fluid-loss lost circulation squeeze material. Creates a seal in the loss zone, effective in both water-based and oil-based mud applications.




USEAL-90 is a highly effective, high-solids, high-fluid-loss lost circulation squeeze

material. A solid plug is formed in the thief formation when water or oil is squeezed from the slurry. USEAL-90 creates a seal in the loss zone, not in the wellbore like conventional LCM. The seal cannot be easily disrupted by circulation or drill pipe movement




excellent protection from Calcium Carbonate, Calcium Sulfate, Barium Sulfate and Strontium Sulfate types of Scale Deposition in Brines during Oil Well Drilling. It is compatible with Drilling Brines and other Mud Chemicals.



Provide suspension, fluid- loss and cross linking. It is form a rigid gel  structure




UNICLEAN surfactant-based well cleaners perform wellbore displacement, casing cleaning and water-wetting operations. With UNICLEAN well cleaner, removal of drilling fluid, oil and solid residues is fast, which can result in reduced cleanup time and filtration costs. UNICLEAN well cleaners are imperative to helping ensure that operations are not extended when transitioning from drilling to completion operations
