Fluid loss control is one of the oil industry’s highest concerns. It affects productivity, performance, and cost—not to mention the environment and safety. Selvol™ Premiol oilfield performance products, released in 2005, represented a new beginning for Sekisui Specialty Chemicals in the oil field industry.
Listening to the needs of the industry, Sekisui Specialty Chemicals set out to tailor new solutions to address oil field challenges—Selvol™ Premiol is the culmination of this research.
Currently used primarily for cementing and drilling, Selvol™ Premiol offers a potentially broad range of applications for the oil field industry in downhole applications. Target areas include acidizing, stimulation, workover, water management, and fracturing among others.
In an effort to develop laboratory and field data and deliver optimum performance and cost advantages, Sekisui Specialty Chemicals’s Selvol™ Premiol R&D is supported by in-house cementing and drilling fluid labs staffed with personnel experienced in oil field applications.
Three major technology initiatives by Sekisui Specialty Chemicals in the oilfield industry are represented by three distinctive product lines. These include:
Selvol™ Premiol DWC (deep well cementing):
High temperature performance fluid loss control additives
Selvol™ Premiol MRC (mid-range cementing):
Versatile, mid-range temperature fluid loss control additives.
Today, Sekisui Specialty Chemicals offers three new products for fluid loss control in cementing operations.
Selvol™ Premiol DWC-50 is a powder-form fluid loss control additive for deep well applications that delivers high temperature performance (up to 150ºC) at cost levels below traditional high molecular weight polymers. At the same time, this advanced additive demonstrates excellent, cost-effective performance at low temperatures (50ºC to 60ºC). With a single product that functions across a wide range of conditions, the oilfield service industry can consolidate inventory of fluid loss control products.

Selvol™ Premiol OSC-10 is a proprietary water-based, fluid loss control additive designed for offshore cementing or onshore applications where liquid delivery is desired. This product delivers performance equivalent to the best of traditional low temperature, mineral oil-based fluid loss control agents. The aqueous nature of Selvol™ Premiol OSC-10 offers a better environmental profile than typical mineral oil-based products. The defining feature of this product is its high concentration that allows for economical delivery and maximum cost efficiency compared to competing technologies.
Selvol™ Premiol MRC-33 is a powder-form fluid loss control additive for mid-range temperatures in oilfield cement applications. At temperatures between 75ºC and 120ºC, this product provides the desired fluid loss and preferred, low surface rheology without settling. These benefits provide the oilfield industry with a cost effective alternative to current polymer technologies.
