Fluid Loss Control Aid for Water Based Drilling Fluids 

Modified Starch is a modified and non-fermenting pre-gelatinized starch based additive for reducing fluid loss in a variety of water based drilling mud.  Modified Starch exceeds API and OCMA specifications for drilling starch.

Functions:

  • Reduces the filtration rate of the fluid with minimal effect to the fluid rheology.
  • Effective in both weighted and low solids mud over a wide PH range.
  • Coats and encapsulates cuttings and solids in the drilling fluid, thereby inhibiting the swelling and disintegration of water sensitive solids.
  • Improves the character and consistency of wall cake, thereby reducing the potential for stuck pipe.
  • Maintains performance at down-hole temperatures up to 250 deg F.

Recommended Treatment:

Concentrations in the range of 1.0-4.0 bbl are recommended to control drilling mud properties. The quantity used would be dependent on the drilling fluid system, drilling depth and equipment.

Packaging:

Packaged in 25 kg multiwall paper sacks and in HDPE big bags.

Legislation and Handling Recommendations:

No Restricted by any regulatory agency.  Refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for the product prior to use.
