Bio Balance Downhole Drilling Fluid

Bio Balance Downhole Drilling Fluid is a member of organic complex oil chemistry. It is designed for downhole drilling that can be used with water based muds, oil based muds, and heavy brine solutions. It is extremely stable at high temperatures.

Bio Balance Downhole Drilling Fluid is an efficient friction reducer for a wide variety of fluid types, including fresh water, sea water, and heavy brines and acids concentrations.

Benefits of Bio Balance Downhole Drilling Fluid:

*Hydrates rapidly in fresh water and brine water          *High tolerance to changes in pH and temperature

*Resists thermally induced hydrolysis                              *Concentrated and VOC compliance

*Maintains solubility at high temperatures                    *Excellent as a thickener for slick water fracturing

*Provides excellent friction reduction                              *Liquid form easily disperse than powder

*Thickens brines of various compositions                       *Can be mixed on the fly and does not cause lumping

*Improves carry capacity of fluids                                        problems compared to powdered friction reducer

*Reduces torque                                                                    *It is effective at low concentrations (0.5 to 0.75/gal

*Reduces friction to increase ROP                                        per 1000 gallons) in Brine Water.

*Increases lubricity to save mud pumps, mud motors and drill bits


Useful as a thickener or friction reducer in the flowing brines or mixtures:

– Fresh Water                – Potassium Chloride                 – Sodium Chloride

– Seawater                    – Sodium Chloride                    – Alkali Metal Formates

– Calcium Chloride       – Heavy Brine Water                 – Sodium Chloride- Sodium Carbone


Bio Balance Downhole Drilling Fluid has historically been used in a wide variety of oilfield applications. Because of its excellent friction reduction capabilities, it has been widely used in coiled tubing work over operations and in fracture acidizing. Provides excellent stability and lubricity at temperature above 300°F

In conformance control applications, the Bio Balance Downhole Drilling Fluid provides flexibility in treatment design and superior high temperature stability. At low to intermediate temperatures, it can be readily cross-linked with chromium, aluminum and zirconium ions to produce gels for profile modification or water shutoff. At high temperatures, it can be readily cross-linked with various organic systems, including phenol-formaldehyde, resorcinol-formaldehyde, and phenyl acetate- HMTA or Hydroquinone-HTMA, and various minerals. Suggestion Use Rate: Calculate the concentration of the slug put in gallons. Multiple the amount of gallons by 5%. That number is the number of gallons of Bio Balance Downhole Drilling Fluid you should use in your slug pit.
