Viscosifiers / Shale Inhibition

SHALE-BLOCK SHALE-BLOCK is a sulfonated asphalt that is water soluble and primarily used as a shale stabilizer. SHALE-BLOCK is resistant to common mud contaminants and has exhibited high temperature stabilizing properties on weighted muds.
 

SHALE-TONE

An asphaltic based shale stabilizer that is dispersible in both fresh water and sea water environments. SHALE-TONE can be used as a preventative treatment for sloughing shales or to overcome existing problems in shale sections. SHALE-TONE also provides some fluid loss properties as well as wellbore stabilization and lubrication.
 

RMI-PAL 30

This high molecular weight liquid PHPA provides viscosity development and hole cleaning capability in addition to shale encapsulation properties. RMI-PAL 30 has been used successfully for over 20 years to stabilize sloughing shales in fresh, KCl and salt water based drilling fluids. The liquid emulsion formulation offers a high activity product in a low viscosity, easy to handle product.
 

RMI-PHPA

Our dry counterpart to the RMI-PAL 30. The RMI-PHPA is a granular powder with excellent handling and mixing properties. This product offers all of the performance characteristics of the liquid PHPA but has the economic benefits of a high activity powder.
