Single salt used to form clear-brine workover and completion fluids

Calcium chloride (CaCl2) powder is a single salt used to form clear-brine workover and completion fluids with densities ranging from 8.4 to 11.8 lbm/galUS [1,007 to 1,414 kg/m3]. These fluids are used where formation pressures require densities from 8.4 to 11.8 lbm/galUS or where the inhibitive properties of a calcium fluid are required to prevent the hydration and migration of swelling clays. Calcium chloride can be mixed with calcium bromide (CaBr2) to obtain densities up to 15.1 lbm/galUS [1,809 kg/m3]. When used with zinc bromide (ZnBr2), densities to 19.2 lbm/galUS [2,301 kg/m3] can be achieved.
