LG-100 Additive

For High Performance Water Based Mud

The LG-100 additive improves drilling operations with superior inhibition, wellbore stability, lubricity,
reusability, cost-effectiveness, and eco-friendliness.

Supercharge Your WBM

Approaching oil-based mud levels of performance, without the cost.

The primary building block for high-performance water-based drilling fluids, the all-in-one LG-100 inhibition and hydrate suppressant from Paragon ISG reduces cost compared to oil-based mud (OBM) while also reducing your environmental footprint.

Equally effective in freshwater as well as brine water-based drilling fluids, the LG-100 additive provides superior inhibition and wellbore stability.

LG-100 can be used to design a high-performance water based mud system that approaches even oil-based mud systems in performance, while also exhibiting the durability required to be reused on multiple well pads in today’s unconventional shale plays.

Case Study

Faster Drilling, Lower Cost

LG-100 Depth/Days versus OBM

In the Eagle Ford shale, an operator faced Gumbo problems while drilling a 12 ¼ inch hole to set surface casing at 5,400 feet. The flow line was plugging, and the Bottom Hole Assembly (BHA) was “balling up.” On the next well, 3% LG-100 was added, effectively eliminating Gumbo issues, reducing drilling time by 30%, cutting mud costs by $8,000 to 5,400 feet, and completing the job in just 11 hours.


Reduced Drilling Time


Reduction In Mud Cost

Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD)

LG-100 also excels in helping with difficult Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) challenges including thick mud and frack out. Deploying the LG-100 hydration suppressant additive helps operators save time and lower costs by ensuring wellbore stability and reducing swelling.

LG-100 is suitable for use on all types of HDD jobs including pipelines, service conduit, fiber optics, and other extended-reach boring projects.

Environment & Sustainability

Formulated with an environmentally benign anionic modified vegetable oil derivative and a blend of mixed metals, the easily recyclable LG-100 is a key component of a high performance water-based drilling mud system. By greatly increasing performance of water-based drilling fluids, LG-100 enables efficient drilling without costly and environmentally hazardous oil-based mud.

Through reuse across multiple wells and by reducing the cost, risk, and emissions associated with oil-based mud, LG-100 can help advance you and your clients’ ESG objectives.
