High-performance water-based drilling fluid system
Reduce torque, drag, shale swelling, and dispersion in environmentally sensitive shale.
The inhibitor suppresses clay hydration by intercalating and reducing the space between clay platelets so that water molecules will not penetrate and cause swelling.
