Shale Inhibitors & Flocculants

 


adobe_file_w GLY-GP (Download GLY-GP Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Broad-Cloud-Point, general-purpose polyglycol for low-salinity fluids and low temperatures

Function: Improves shale stability, lubricity and high-temperature filtration control in freshwater to seawater polyglycol systems.


adobe_file_w GLY-HC (Download GLY-HC Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Polyglycol for high-salinity fluids and high temperatures

Function: Improves wellbore stability, lubricity, high‐temperature filtration control in fresh‐to‐high salinity and can be used in wells with high formation temperatures.


adobe_file_w GLY-LC (Download GLY-LC Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Low-Cloud-Point polyglycol for low-salinity fluids and low temperatures

Function: Improves wellbore stability, lubricity, high‐temperature filtration control in fresh‐to‐medium salinity and can be used in wells with low formation temperatures.


adobe_file_w GLY-MC (Download GLY-MC Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Medium-Cloud-Point polyglycol for moderate-salinity fluids and high temperatures

Function: Improves wellbore stability, lubricity, high‐temperature filtration control in fresh‐to‐medium salinity and can be used in wells with moderate formation temperatures.


adobe_file_w SIL-N-2.73 (Download SIL-N-2.73 Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Liquid Sodium-Silicate

Function: Provides superior chemical inhibition to reactive shales, clay and claystone formations, chalk, and formations interbedded with dispersive clays. Secondary inhibition is achieved with the use of KCl or NaCl.


adobe_file_w SIL-K (Download SIL-K Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Potassium Silicate

Function: Provides superior chemical inhibition to reactive shales, clay and claystone formations, chalk, and formations interbedded with dispersive clays. It does not require additional salt to enhance inhibition, used in environmentally sensitive areas, where chlorides are prohibited from being discharged.


adobe_file_w PHPA (Download PHPA Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Dry PHPA polymer (partially hydrated poly acrylate)

Function: Encapsulating polymer for freshwater and saltwater mud.


adobe_file_w PHPA-L (Download PHPA-L Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Liquid PHPA (partially hydrated poly acrylate)

Function: Provide cuttings encapsulation and clay‐dispersion inhibition in fresh and saltwater drilling fluids.


adobe_file_w PHPA-RD (Download PHPA-RD Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Readily dispersible PHPA Powder (partially hydrated poly acrylate)

Function: Provide cuttings encapsulation and shale stabilization in freshwater to saltwater drilling fluids ranging from low solids to weighted mud.


adobe_file_w TROL (Download TROL Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Sulfonated Asphalt

Function: Water dispersible shale inhibitor, aids in stabilizing shale sections, controlling solids dispersion and improving wall cake characteristics.


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

Description: Sulfonated Asphalt Supreme

Function: Water dispersible shale inhibitor, aids in stabilizing shale sections, controlling solids dispersion and improving wall cake characteristics. Provide high‐temperature fluid‐loss control for water‐base drilling fluid.


adobe_file_w SHALE-HS (Download SHALE-HS Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Poly amino acid hydration suppressant

Function: Water soluble hydration suppressant, environmentally acceptable, organic compound designed to reduce the dispersion & swelling of reactive clay formation & minimizes the potential for bit balling.
