Tiger Bullets are a new type of plastic-and-wood composite that prevents lost circulation in oil-drilling wells. The technology was licensed from the LSU AgCenter by the Louisiana startup company Hole Pluggers, LLC. This new product has a lot of potential given the severity of the lost circulation problem and the size of the potential market.
