Fewer leaks, so all’s well that ends well


Drilling an oil or gas well is tough business. That last thing you want is a leak.

Ashland’s cement additives, such as XxtraDura™ GMA multipurpose additive, help gas and oil companies drill safely and efficiently by proving extra strength to wells as they are built, typically under extreme conditions.

How extreme? Try delivering a cement slurry with water temperatures up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Or with salt content up to 36 percent. You get the picture.

Our additives help keep gasses and fluids from getting in the wrong places while the cement slurry is setting, normally in an exceptionally short transition period.

In the energy industry, time is money. Our XxtraDura GMA additive helps stop the clock.
