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
    base mud systems.

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

  • Can be used to disperse hydrocarbonbased lubricants in water base muds.

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

  • Reduces BHA balling problems.
