Product Information

Super Pickle® is part of Well Flow’s wellbore cleanup system. It is typically used in conjunction with Rinse Aid® to clean metal surfaces and water wet them for the completion process.

Super Pickle® is a complex blend of solvents specially selected to be effective at dissolving and dispersing pipe dope and oil based mud prior to well stimulations and gravel packs. It has the ability to displace the organic surfactants that hold the pipe dope together and release the oil wetted solid fillers. The solvent effectively removes the very persistent viscous “sludge” which is formed when residual oil based mud is contacted with water.

Super Pickle® is used in oil based mud displacements whether they are formulated with mineral oils or the new generation pseudo oils, esters and poly alpha olefins. 

Super Pickle® is designed to be user friendly so that it is safe to use and dispose of. It contains no aromatic hydrocarbons or chlorinated hydrocarbons, and is classified as non-flammable, biodegradable and has a Gold Band rating in the North Sea.
