Calcium Chloride (chemical formula CaCl2) is the ionic compound of calcium and chlorine. It is a salt that behaves as a typical ionic halide, being solid at room temperature and highly soluble in water. Common applications include brine for refrigeration plants, ice and dust control on roads, and desiccation. In the oil industry, Calcium Chloride is used in establishing and maintaining oil and gas wells. It helps well fluids gain needed consistency, increases density and stabilizes shale formations. As a completion fluid it seals well casings and displaces drilling mud. In short, iran Calcium Chloride is used in several applications for new or existing wells to improve efficiency and production. Calcium Chloride Prills are used in gas and oil drilling. It helps keep gases from forming and helps sludge from getting out of hand.
Sodium chloride has multiple functions in drilling and completion fluids. It is used to increase the fluid density, reduces the freezing point of water base drilling fluids, inhibits hydrate formation, provides shale control. Additionally it can be used as an internal brine for oil or synthetic base drilling fluids to balance formation salinity and avoid osmotic transport. It is used as a base brine for completion and workover fluids. It has advantageous over other divalent brines as it is monovalent and has no precipitation issues.
mica have been preferably used in water-based and oil based oil-well drillings operations as an additive mud chemical to prevent loss of circulation and seepage. Mica is specially added to seal-off the lost circulation zones. The platy structure of mica facilitates the overlapping of particles to form a layer or wall and acts as a sealent that bridges the openings. The use of mica helps to seal porous formations and contributes to regain circulation keeping the solids in suspension.
Potassium chloride (KCl) is a soluble salt that is an extremely efficient shale stabiliser when drilling hydro sensitive clays and shales. Inhibition is provided through ion exchange; the potassium ion enters between the individual clay platelets in the shale so that they are held together, thus eliminating entry of water from the drilling fluid. Potassium chloride (KCl) powder is a high purity, dry crystalline inorganic salt used to form clear brine used in workover and completion operations which require densities raning from 8.4 to 9.7 lb/gal (1007 to 1162 kg/m3).
Sulfuric acid is a colorless oily liquid. It is soluble in water with release of heat. It is corrosive to metals and tissue. It will char wood and most other organic matter on contact, but is unlikely to cause a fire. Density 15 lb / gal. Long term exposure to low concentrations or short term exposure to high concentrations can result in adverse health effects from inhalation. It is used to make fertilizers and other chemicals, in petroleum refining, in iron and steel production, and some times uses as a strong acid in gas and oil well drilling for drilling systems.
phosphoric acid is a white solid which melts at 42.35̊C to form a viscous liquid. In aqueous solution, phosphoric acid behaves as a triprotic acid, having three ionizable hydrogen atoms. The hydrogen ions are lost sequentially. Phosphoric acid is not a particularly strong acid as indicated by its first dissociation constant. It is a stronger acid than acetic acid, but weaker than sulfuric acid and hydrochloric acid. Each successive dissociation step occurs with decreasing ease. Thus, the ion H2PO4‾ is a very weak acid, and HPO4 2 ‾ is an extremely weak acid.
