Potassium chloride is widely used for drilling and processing fluids for oil and gas well perforation and killing. Clay minerals present in soils adversely affect well performance and cause swelling and undesirable changes in the formation permeability. Potassium chloride inhibits swelling and clay dispersion ensuring a better cement/formation binding.
Potassium chloride benefits:
- ensures high stability of wells
- allows producing well-killing fluids of up to 1,17 kg/m3 density
- the most budget-friendly potassium source
Potassium chloride produced by Uralkali is completely water-soluble and chemically pure. This product meets the requirements for components of well-killing fluids used in oil production.
