Wellbore Stability Benefits

  • Effective emulsifier in oil-in-water muds and will provide some emulsification and dispersing properties for liquid lubricants.

  • Can be used to stabilize salt-contaminated muds.

  • Particularly effective as a high-temperature filter loss additive in water-based mud systems.

  • Highly effective HTHP water loss reduction results in thin, tough, lubricated filter cake development.

  • Can be used to disperse hydrocarbon-based lubricants in water-based muds.

  • Decreases borehole erosion, washouts and key-seating tendencies.

  • Reduces BHA balling problems.
