Flint-Coat vs. Standard Casing Coatings

Flint-Cloat Cross Cut Close UpFlint-Coat Tech ComparisonAn added benefit to corrosion control is achieved when using Flint-Coat through the production zone where cement is applied. The illustration shows a common communication problem. As oil enters the casing, some of the production can be lost to a thief zone via a the micro annulus from an imperfect cement bond to untreated casing.

Another costly problem is water encroachment into the production zone. With the cement adhering to the Flint-Coat, a near perfect bond is achieved. Wellbore and casing become one, leaving no avenue for communication.
