Function: Used to form clear-brine workover and completion fluid with densities ranging from 8.4 to 11.8 lb/ gal. Inhibits hydration and migration of swelling clays. Used in invert emulsion mud to adjust the activity of the water phase.


adobe_file_w CARB (Download CARB Technical Data Sheet)

Description: CaCO3 is Acid Soluble weighting or bridging agent

Function: Acid-soluble bridging and weighting agent for controlling fluid loss and density in drilling, workover & completion.


adobe_file_w CARB-S (Download CARB-S Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Sized Calcium Carbonate

Function: Acid-soluble bridging and weighting agent for controlling fluid loss and density. Available in Fine, Medium & Coarse grades.


adobe_file_w SODIUM-HYDROXIDE (Download SODIUM HYDROXIDE Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Sodium hydroxide to control pH

Function: Used to maintain or increase pH. Increasing pH with NaOH precipitates magnesium (Mg 2+) and suppresses (Ca2+) in high hardness water, reduces corrosion and neutralizes acid gases such as carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide.


adobe_file_w GYPSUM (Download GYPSUM Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Gypsum (Calcium sulfate (CaSO42H2O)) to treat carbonate contamination in high pH mud

Function: Source of Ca ion, used to reduce carbonate ion contamination, without increasing the pH in freshwater and seawater muds.


adobe_file_w LIME (Download LIME Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Calcium Hydroxide for Alkalinity control & bicarbonate contamination. Primary invert emulsion mud component

Function: Economical source of calcium and alkalinity in water and oil base muds. Flocculating agent in spud mud for improved hole cleaning, removes soluble carbonate ions, controls corrosion and activates fatty acid in oil base mud.


adobe_file_w LIME-O (Download LIME-O Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Calcium Oxide

Function: Used as a source of alkalinity to elevate pH, buffer aqueous fluids at high pH, flocculate bentonite, precipitate soluble carbonate ions, and saponify fatty acid emulsifiers.


adobe_file_w KCL (Download KCL Technical Data Sheet)

Description: KCL, Potassium Chloride

Function: Used to form clear-brine workover and completion fluid with densities ranging from 8.4 to 9.7 lb/ gal. Inhibits hydration and migration of swelling clays.


adobe_file_w KOH (Download KOH Technical Data Sheet)

Description: KOH, Caustic Potash, Potassium Hydroxide

Function: Used to maintain or increase pH, inhibitor for swelling shales. Used instead of caustic soda to reduce the sodium ion content and avoid dispersion of clays in inhibitive water-base fluids and drill-in fluids. Increasing pH with KOH precipitates magnesium (Mg 2+) and suppresses (Ca2+) in high hardness water, reduces corrosion and neutralizes acid gases such as carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide.


adobe_file_w POTASSIUM-IODIDE (Download POTASSIUM IODIDE Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Is used as a tracer in water base Mud

Function: Used as a tracer in water base muds to determine mud filtrate invasion in formation.


adobe_file_w SAPP (Download SAPP Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate (Na2H2P2O7) is an effective dispersant and protect against cement contamination

Function: Efficient dispersant in low-weight fresh water muds used in up hole drilling and effective additive for treating cement contamination and reduce viscosity.


adobe_file_w SODA-ASH (Download SODA-ASH Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Sodium carbonate to treat Ca ion out in makeup water and to remove Calcium Contamination particularly due to Anhydrite

Function: Used as a source of carbonate ions to precipitate & remove soluble calcium from water base fluids and makeup waters. Provide effective treatment for Calcium Contamination particularly due to Anhydrite, increases pH and flocculates spud mud.


adobe_file_w MGO (Download MGO Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Magnesium Oxide, Anhydrous

Function: Used as a pH buffering agent, promotes temperature stability and enhances the rheological and filtration properties of water base drilling fluid at high temperature.


adobe_file_w SALT (Download SALT Technical Data Sheet)

Description: NaCl for weight up and Salt Saturated System

Function: Used to form clear-brine workover and completion fluid with densities ranging from 8.4 to 10 lb/ gal. Increase shale inhibition by decreasing water activity, reducing formation salt dissolution, reducing freezing point of water base fluids and reducing the potential of forming gas hydrates.


adobe_file_w SODIUM-CHROMATE (Download SODIUM-CHROMATE Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Na2CrO4, sodium salt in which chromium atoms are in the plus-6 valence state

Function: Used as corrosion inhibitor.


adobe_file_w SODIUM-DICHROMATE (Download SODIUM-DICHROMATE Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Na2Cr2O7, sodium salt in which chromium atoms are in the plus-7 valence state

Function: Is used as corrosion inhibitor and to prevent temperature gelation.


adobe_file_w SODIUM-NITRATE (Download SODIUM-NITRATE Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Long term tracer

Function: Used as long term tracer in water base muds to determine mud filtrate invasion in formation.
