GEO Clay Series
GEO Drilling Fluids has been developed over 35 years of experience in different varieties of clays throughout GEO’s operating areas. GEODF has developed three different bases ‘freshwater systems’ to be a part of the Clay Series. The Clay Series by GEODF has been proven on (+/-) 15,000 wells as a cost-effective solution for numerous operators.
Is GEO’s “gel-water” mud system(s) design for both “non-dispersed” and “dispersed” applications. KlaPro uses highly refined API commercial bentonite for upper-end rheology and basic filtrate control. The system uses a variety of other polymeric additives for low shear rate control, contaminant control and both low temperature or high-temperature control.
KlaCon (reduced pH WBM):
Environmentally friendly water base fluid designed to retard hydration of highly reactive shales and clays along with stabilizing pH and water-sensitive shales. KlaCon is an alternative to inhibition without the use of salts. Reduction in clay related problems will result in less maintenance and rig time.
A high-performance fluid version of KlaCon is engineered to maintain rheology and consistent density in extreme temperature and pressure environments. This system is utilized in a harsh environment, Geothermal well and areas where long term exposure to steam injection is prevalent.
Is a freshwater clay base system blended with particular sized sulfonated asphaltenes and gilsonite for control of water-sensitive shales.
Used with synthetic-based fluids.
Used with low aromatic base systems.
Used with diesel-based fluids.
