EnerLITE Direct Emulsion System

Description

The EnerLITE direct emulsion system provides a simple solution for density control in freshwater or saturated brine environments. Density is controlled through additions of diesel or mineral oil to achieve mud weights well below typical water-continuous systems. NORMUL, a stabilizing surfactant, maintains the dispersion of the oil phase in the water or brine phase.

Benefits

• Precise density control

• Simple mixing and maintenance

• Improved logistics through reduced fluid     volume requirements

• Low density with water-based drilling fluids

 

Applications

• Saturated salt systems requiring mud weights     below 10.0 lbm/gal

• Depleted formation at mud weights below       freshwater (8.33 lbm/gal)

• Narrow drilling windows
