BoreVert GEL HT pure hectorite clay is the primary viscosifier in all BoreVert oil‐base drilling fluid systems with high‐temperature requirements. BoreVert GEL viscosifier is used to increase the carrying capacity and suspension properties, provide support for weight materials, and improve cuttings removal. BoreVert GEL viscosifier also aids in filtercake formation and filtration control.
- Effective at high temperatures
- Provides gel structure and viscosity for the suspension of weight material
- Increases viscosity for improved hole‐cleaning capacity
- Improves filtercake quality and filtration characteristics
BoreVert GEL is an effective viscosifier in oil‐base, synthetic‐base is temperature stable to 400°F
BoreVert GEL viscosifier is unaffected by contaminants normally encountered in drilling.
BoreVert GEL viscosifier contributes to the HTHP fluid loss of the system.
Good agitation and sufficient shear are required to develop viscosity when using BoreVert GEL to build a fresh mud. Initial system concentration will depend on the specific drilling fluid formulation and drilling conditions, but, for most applications, additions in the range of 2.8 to 9.8 lb/bbl are sufficient.
For system maintenance, BoreVert GEL should be added as needed to maintain downhole rheology, flow properties and gel strengths in the desired ranges.
