“Gilsonite Uses In Drilling Mud”
“Gilsonite Uses In Drilling Mud” Gilsonite has been used in the recent 53 years as a component of the drilling fluid to cause in creating drilling fluids having properties that boost and promote the drilling process. Particularly, oil-based drilling fluids are used for cooling, lubrication, removing the cuttings, and maintaining the well under pressure to control entry of gas and liquid. Gilsonite drilling Fluid is a typical oil-based drilling mud includes an oil component (the continuous phase), a water component (the disperse phase) and a solvent clay which are mixed together to form a gel (also known as drilling mud or oil mud). Gilsonite has the capacity of plugging micro fractured shales and sealing them. Gilsonite is used to aid in stabilizing shale sections and controlling solids dispersion. Weight factors, salts, emulsifiers, fluid loss additives, and numerous other additives could be contained or dispersed into the drilling mud. The ability of the drilling mud to maintain viscosity and emulsion stability generally determines the quality of the drilling mud.
