KLA-GARD B chloride-free, organic shale stabilizer reduces the swelling of sensitive shales and drill cuttings exposed to water-base drilling fluids. KLA-GARD B additive inhibits shale hydration, which reduces the effect of drill solids on viscosity and works to minimize problems such as excessive dilution rates, increased torque and drag, high surge and swab pressures and bottomhole assembly balling. This high-quality concentrated product may be utilized in a wide variety of mud systems and has such low toxicity values that it may be used offshore. Because KLA-GARD B additive is chloride-free, it may be used in areas where environmental concerns prevent the discharge of salt.
