Enhanced-polymer water-based drilling fluid system
The KLA-SHIELD drilling fluid system includes a broad range of polyamines that make it a preferred system when environmental guidelines dictate a water-based drilling fluid and hole conditions demand flexibility.
The system is fine-tuned to meet a variety of drilling challenges—large-diameter wellbores, extended-reach drilling, and highly reactive shales. It also is ideal for drilling high-angle wells in reactive shale formations where wellbore stability, torque and drag, and borehole and logging quality are major concerns.
The KLA-SHIELD system uses three different mechanisms to inhibit swelling and dispersion of clay.
Products that make up the KLA-SHIELD system are formulated to address environmental concerns worldwide, both on land and offshore.
