    Principal Additives of Saturated Salt Muds Drilling Fluids

    2020-02-17· Saturated Salt Muds are generally inexpensive to maintain and contain few additives. System complexities are greatly reduced due to the limited selection of additives that will function effectively in a saturated salt mud. Table 20 lists typical additives, function, and concentration for Saturated Salt Muds.

    2020-01-16· As salt concentrations increase to greater than 10,000 mg/L, mud properties become increasingly more difficult to control. Muds are usually called salt-based muds if the sodium chloride content is greater than 10,000 mg/L NaCl. There are three basic salt-based muds: Saturated Salt Muds may be prepared purposely or evolve from drilling into salt.

    A water mud containing varying amounts of dissolved sodium chloride, NaCl, as a major component. Undissolved salt may also be present in saturated salt muds to increase density beyond 10 lbm/gal or to act as a bridging agent over permeable zones. Starch and starch derivatives for fluid-loss control and xanthan gums for hole-cleaning are among the few highly effective additives for saltwater muds.

    2020-01-16· In saturated salt water, bentonite did not swell, and contributed little toward reduction of filtration. To thicken salty muds, bentonite was mixed into fresh water and the resulting thick slurry was added to the salt-water mud. After a short time, however, the salty mud would become thin and additional treatment would be necessary.
