The inhibitors for water-based drilling muds are used to inhibit active clay shales and to minimize drilling mud lifetime.
They perform different functions according to the application conditions:
reduction of drilling mud lifetime, reduction of waste and dilution volumes
increasing the well bore stability, preventing clay matter hydration
preparation of fresh systems of initial penetration drilling muds
improvement of inhibiting property of mineralized systems
Type of the inhibitor for the water-based drilling mud as well as its physical properties are selected according to the scope and conditions of application, restrictions on compatibility with other components of the formulation.
Mud-Expert is ready to launch the production of inhibitors based on polyamines, polyglycols, silicates and other substances according to the Customers' specifications.
