Potassium Sulphonated Asphalt

POTASSIUM SULPHONATED ASPHALT manufactured by Global Drilling Fluids and Chemicals Limited at its Facility in Halol ,Gujarat , India . GDFCL manufactures a vide range of  Shale Stabilizers  and Shale Inhibitors and Clay Hydration Supressants for the Oilfield Industry 

Description

Potassium sulphonated Asphalt manufactured by GDFCL is modified potassium sulphonated asphaltic compound. In potassium environments, it is highly effective because it contributes water soluble potassium into the mud system. Its versatile mud conditioner contributes to the stability of drilling fluids, stabilizes shale, inhibits dispersion of drilled solids, reduces torque and drag, controls high temperature water loss and acts as an alternative to oil usage etc. and aids emulsification of oil. It also Provides K+Ions as required and is also Known as Sulfonated Asphalt-K

Application:

Potassium sulphonated Asphalt manufactured by GDFCL for Shale control, fluid loss control and improving lubricity of all water systems at high temperature and Pressure HTHP 

Common Name: POTASSIUM SULPHONATED ASPHALT

Advantages of Using GLO ASPHOTEX K 1000 by GDFCL

  • It stabilizes shale formation.
  • Inhibits dispersion of drilled solids.
  • Controls high temperature water loss.
  • Produces thin and strong wall cake.
  • Forms high emulsion where oil is used.
  • Controls shear strength.
  • Reduces the down hole with temperature fluid loss and contributes to corrosion inhibition.
  • Improves lubricity thereby reducing torque and drag.
