DRILLING CHEMICALS RANGE
KAPL provides a range of drilling fluid additives engineered to improve drilling performance.
|1||CLOUD POINT GLYCOLS/ SHALE INHIBITORS/LUBRICANTS||These additives are low toxic, versatile cloud point glycols for shale control designed for low to salinity water level system and can be used in well with low, moderate and high formation temperature and isolation or in combination with salts and polyamines.|
|2||POLYAMINE BASED SHALE STABILIZERS||These additives are amine based shale inhibitor which are formulated to stabilize reactive shales & clays while drilling with water based drilling fluids. These products are highly effective in inhibiting clay swelling and hydration of cuttings, preventing bit balling and reducing torque and drag.|
|3||ROP ENHANCERS||This additive is low toxic, versatile, ROP Enhancer designed for medium- to -high salinity water level system and can be used in wells with moderate formation temperature. It can provide improved well bore stability, lubricity, high temperature filtration control, plus reduced dilution rates and bit balling. In a non – dispersed polymer system, it is most effective when used in conjunction with inhibitive salts like KCI.|
|4||EXTREME PRESSURE LUBRICANTS||These additives are general and special purpose extreme pressure lubricants which are used to reduce the torque, drag and possibility of wall sticking. These lubricants find their application in highly deviated well bores, where a tough lubricating film is needed between the wall cake and drill string.|
|5||FOAM CONTROL AGENTS/DEFOAMERS/ANTIFOAMS.||An effective way to disrupt foam formation is to introduce a foam control surfactant into the system. A defoamer or antifoam functions by spreading over the gas/ liquid interfaces, thereby preventing foam forming materials from coming to the surface and providing a surface layer which will not sustain foam.|
|6||DRILLING DETERGENTS||These additives are used to reduce the surface tension of water based mud systems and the sticking tendency of water sensitive formulations.|
|7||H2S SCAVENGERS||These tie up with the H2S in an irreversible reaction preventing the release and thus reduces corrosion leading to improved safety. These products are designed to control H2S with bubble tower applications and/or continuous injections into the wellhead, infield or other transmission lines.|
|8||H2S SCAVANGER WITH SCALE INHIBITOR||This product is formulated to give excellent H2S scavenging characteristic with scale inhibition. It features an instantaneous reaction with hydrogen sulfide and is very effective even at low dosage rates. It effectively controls the scaling problem without any negative impact on downstream operations.|
|9||EMULISIFIERS FOR OIL BASED MUD||PRIMARY EMULISIFIER|
These additives are used to produce a highly stable invert emulsion fluid with excellent emulsion stability.
These additives are multi-functional which provide higher stability to primary emulsifier & imparts preferential wetting of solids by the continuous oil phase.
It provides good and stable emulsification imparts sufficient oil wetting characteristics of solids and high tolerance for contaminants. The product also works well with all of the commonly used internal phase salt solutions.
|10||WETTING AGENTS||These additives can quickly change the natural water- wetting characteristics of drilled solids and weighting agents in oil muds, making them preferentially oil-wetting. They are used as supplementary oil mud additive for improving fluid loss properties and emulsion stability.|
|11||PIPE FREEING AGENTS||These additives are specifically designed to assist in freeing stuck pipes. It lubricates and dehydrates filter cake from water- based fluids to aid in creating cracks in the mud cake to help alleviate deferentially stuck drill pipes.|
(Regular/ High Temp. & high Pressure)
|These additives are anionic acrylic co-polymers used in water-based mud systems to control rheological properties and to impart high temperature stability.|
|13||EMULSIFIER FOR INVENT EMULSIONS||These additives provide excellent water-in-oil emulsion especially with high water percentage and high electrolyte concentration. These can be used alongwith primary and secondary emulsifiers.|
|14||SURFACTANT FOR SPACER FLUIDS||These additives are specialty surfactants used in formulation of spacers used before cementing of oil wells drilled with oil based muds. It is designed to clean up and displace oil and synthetic based muds and solids for better cementation.|
|15||STABLE FOAMING AGENT FOR DRILLING FLUIDS||These additives are surface active products and generates stable micro bubbles in presence of air to develop specific gravity as low as below 0.8. It is a water based drilling fluid.|
|16||HTHP FLUID LOSS REDUCING ADDITIVES||This is an advance polymer based HTHP fluid, loss reducing agent/additive, meant for high performance water based drilling fluid systems. It is available in solid as well as liquid forms. It is designed to be stable upto 225’C.|
