Drilling Detergent is an aqueous blend of surface-active agents. It is designed to reduce the surface tension of all water-base mud systems and reduce the sticking tendency of watersensitive shale cuttings.
Usage: It can be used in all drilling areas and can be used in virtually any water-base drilling fluid. It is used primarily in upper-hole drilling to minimize bit and Bottom- Hole Assembly (BHA) balling, reduce surface tension, and aid in dropping sand and the removal of drill solids. It may be used as an emulsifier at any point in the drilling operation to improve emulsification of oil and reduce the viscosity of oil contaminated fluids.
