Product Description

ConneCT™ Plus gel is a xanthan bio polymer viscosifier designed for use in Newpark’s proprietary ResurreCT™ coiled tubing system for temperatures up to 275°F (135°C). For temperatures above 425°F (218°C), ConneCT™ HT gel is recommended.

Benefits Benefits

ConneCT Plus gel delivers sufficient viscosity to effectively provide solids suspension, as well as optimize hole cleaning and management of rheological properties in freshwater or brine-based fluids. ConneCT Plus yields more fully to enhance performance and saves mixing and yielding time. It resists salt and calcium contamination and maintains sufficient carrying capacity of solids. ConneCT Plus can be effective at reducing friction in coiled tubing applications.

Application Application

ConneCT Plus gel mixes readily into all types of water-based fluids, including brine systems, creating a shear thinning fluid system with low effective viscosity at the bit.

Treatment Recommendation Treatment Recommendation

ConneCT Plus gel can be mixed through the hopper as required. Maximum shear ensures proper hydration. High salinity, cold water temperature and low shear rates slow the development of desired rheologies. Concentrations of 1-3 quarts per 300 gallons are recommended.

ConneCT Plus viscosified fluids may be susceptible to bacterial degradation. ConneCT Plus is effective to 275°F (135°C).
