Fluid loss control additive
Suitable for use in all paraffin-, mineral oil-, or synthetic-based drilling fluid systems.
Oil-based temperature-stable invert-emulsion drilling fluid system
The MEGADRIL oil-based temperature-stable invert-emulsion drilling fluid system delivers robust, temperature-stable invert emulsion fluid without the associated elevated gel strengths. Through its unique combination of chemistries, the MEGADRIL system produces an improved relationship among the 6-rpm reading, gel strength, and yield point.
The MEGADRIL system controls filtration without increasing overall viscosity. It has a higher tolerance for drill solids that can cause progressive gel strengths, enabling reduced pump pressures and increased hole cleaning capabilities while retaining manageable equivalent circulating density (ECD) values.
The MEGADRIL system’s relationship among the yield point, 6-rpm dial reading, and the gel structure enables superior cuttings transport, dramatically improving hole cleaning. The system’s constant rheological relationship ensures efficient cuttings transport and fewer packoffs.
