Utilizing a modified E2 coupled with our exclusively designed E-Lock resin. To use, a mixture of oxidizing additive and water is first pumped into the leak at low rate to deposit the oxidzer inside the leak.  Next, the E-Lock is placed and it immediately solidifies when it comes into contact with the oxidizers.  In cases where fluid cannot be moved through a leak at consistent rates, the leak can first be isolated by a plug or packer, and then a diluted blend of our E-Lock can be spotted across the interval.  Once the E-Lock is placed, the packer is set and pressure is applied to the tubing, forcing the liquid E-Lock through the leak.  If the leak is small, oxidizing catalyst is not necessary for additional strength.

Advantages over existing competing solutions: 

  • E-Lock is water soluble, and therefore does not require solvents or other hazardous fluids to be used in cleanup after the job.

  • The viscosity of E-Lock can be decreased by dilution with water, allowing deployment/penetration through much smaller holes/cracks/thread leaks than existing technologies.
