BIO-ADD® DRILLING MUD EMULSIFIERS

Shrieve's BIO-ADD® emulsifiers (primary and secondary) are used in oil or synthetic-based fluids to help form a stable water-in-oil emulsion. The base fluids and emulsifier blend provide the foundation for a drilling fluid (mud) system with additions of gellants, wetting agents, salts, and typically lime for alkalinity.

Emulsified oil muds offer improvement over standard water muds in the areas of increased drilling rate and bit life, reduction in hole problems, reduction of torque, less sticking of pipe, and less hole enlargement. They can also be recycled and reused from one well to the next.

BIO-ADD 733

A surfactant, based on an ether of carboxylic acid, that functions as a nitrogen-free emulsifier for oil-based and synthetic-based drilling muds. It has high-temperature stability, above 450°F (232°C), and low toxicity.

BIO-ADD 5052

A formulated fatty acid amide derivative used as a secondary emulsifier for use in oil-based (and synthetic-based) muds. BIO-ADD 5052 to enhances the emulsion stability when used with BIO-ADD 6068 primary emulsifier. This secondary emulsifier is readily dispersible in all base oils and contributes to reduced fluid loss control in invert fluid systems.

BIO-ADD 6065

A secondary emulsifier formulated to enhance the performance of BIO-ADD 6067 primary emulsifier. It is readily dispersible in all base oils and creates strong emulsions with high voltage stability in invert fluid systems.

BIO-ADD 6067

A primary emulsifier used in oil-based (or synthetic-based) drilling muds. This product provides stable emulsions at temperature above 204°C (400°F) and resistance to contamination while maintaining good fluid loss properties in the mud. System performance is enhanced when used with the secondary emulsifier BIO-ADD 6065.

BIO-ADD 6068

A formulated amide for use as a primary emulsifier in oil-based drilling muds. This product provides stable emulsions with temperature stability and resistance to contamination while maintaining good fluid loss properties in the mud. System performance is enhanced when used together with the secondary emulsifier BIO-ADD 5052.
