Drilling Mud

Drilling mud, also called drilling fluid, in petroleum engineering, a heavy, viscous fluid mixture that is used in oil and gas drilling operations to carry rock cuttings to the surface and also to lubricate and cool the drill bit. The drilling mud, by hydrostatic pressure, also helps prevent the collapse of unstable strata into the borehole and the intrusion of water from water-bearing strata that may be encountered.

Drilling muds are traditionally based on water, either fresh water, seawater, naturally occurring brines, or prepared brines. Many muds are oil-based, using direct products of petroleum refining such as diesel oil or mineral oil as the fluid matrix. In addition, various so-called synthetic-based muds are prepared using highly refined fluid compounds that are made to more-exacting property specifications than traditional petroleum-based oils. In general, water-based muds are satisfactory for the less-demanding drilling of conventional vertical wells at medium depths, whereas oil-based muds are better for greater depths or in directional or horizontal drilling, which place greater stress on the drilling apparatus. Synthetic-based muds were developed in response to environmental concerns over oil-based fluids, though all drilling muds are highly regulated in their composition, and in some cases specific combinations are banned from use in certain environments.
A typical water-based drilling mud contains a clay, usually bentonite, to give it enough viscosity to carry cutting chips to the surface, as well as a mineral such as barite (barium sulfate) to increase the weight of the column enough to stabilize the borehole. Smaller quantities of hundreds of other ingredients might be added, such as caustic soda (sodium hydroxide) to increase alkalinity and decrease corrosion, salts such as potassium chloride to reduce infiltration of water from the drilling fluid into the rock formation, and various petroleum-derived drilling lubricants. Oil- and synthetic-based muds contain water (usually a brine), bentonite and barite for viscosity and weight, and various emulsifiers and detergents for lubricity.

Drilling Machinery

Drilling mud is pumped down the hollow drill pipe to the drill bit, where it exits the pipe and then is flushed back up the borehole to the surface. For economic and environmental reasons, oil- and synthetic-based muds are usually cleaned and recirculated (though some muds, particularly water-based muds, can be discharged into the surrounding environment in a regulated manner). Larger drill cuttings are removed by passing the returned mud through one or more vibrating screens, and sometimes fine cuttings are removed by passing the mud through centrifuges. Cleaned mud is blended with new mud for reuse down the borehole.

Drilling fluids are also employed in the drilling of water wells.


   General Description:
Uses: Foundries, Well drillers, Iron ore manufacturers the main consumers of Bentonite.
Foundries use Bentonite when pouring metal cast molds. The clay withstands higher temperatures and the excessive heat will not cause the clay to lose its chemical structure.
Well drillers use Bentonite when drilling oil or gas wells. Bentonite will absorb 10 times it weight in water. The bentonite clay is mixed with water and other minerals to form a drilling mud, which seals up the wall of the well bore and allows the rock chips to be pumped back to the surface.
I ron ore manufacturers add Bentonite to crushed taconite to form pellets, which can then be transported to a steel mills.
Bentonite is also used as a:

Gilsonite for Oil Base Drilling.

Oil based drilling fluids and advances in drilling fluid compositions are described in applicant’s co-pending application PCT CA2007/000646 filed April 18, 2007, and incorporated herein by reference. This co-pending application describes the chemistry of organoclays and primary emulsifiers for use in various applications including oil-based drilling fluids and various compositions where in the viscosity of the compositions may be controlled.
By way of background and in the particular case of oil muds or oil-based drilling fluids, organophilic clays have been used for the past 50 years as a component of the drilling fluid to assist in creating drilling fluids having properties that enhance the drilling process. In particular, oil-based drilling fluids are used for cooling and lubrication, removal of cuttings and maintaining the well under pressure to control ingress of liquid and gas.

Gilsonite drilling Fluid is a typical oil-based drilling mud includes an oil component (the continuous phase), a water component (the dispersed phase) and an organophilic clay (hereinafter OC) which are mixed together to form a gel (also referred to as a drilling mud or oil mud). Emulsifiers, weight agents, fluid loss additives, salts and numerous other additives may be contained or dispersed into the mud. The ability of the drilling mud to maintain viscosity and emulsion stability generally determines the quality of the drilling mud.

Gilsonite Confi-Trol 

It is a natural occurring Gilsonite used for HTHP filtration control in invert oil/synthetic base systems at temperatures above 400 F (205 C).
It is compatible with all invert oil / synthetic base systems and can be used both in the initial formulation or for treatment while drilling.
Initial treatment in the range of 2–10 lb/bbl. (5.71–28.53 kg/m3) is recommended, although higher concentrations may be necessary in extreme cases.
Pilot testing should be conducted to determine actual concentration needed in each case. If CONFI-TROL HT is to be added to a newly mixed mud prior to displacement, the addition should be made after all other components have been mixed thoroughly.

Gilsonite Asphasol
Gilsonite Asphasol shale inhibitor is a partially water-soluble, sulfonated organic material developed for use in most water-base drilling fluids. Gilsonite Asphasol shale inhibitor contains no surfactants as do most water-dispersible products used in shale-control applications.

Typical Physical Properties of Asphasol
Physical appearance:  Black, free-flowing powder
Ph (2% solution):        7.5 – 9.5
Solubility in water:     Minimum 50% by weight

Applications of Asphasol
Gilsonite Asphasol shale inhibitor can be used in most water-base drilling fluids. Gilsonite Asphasol shale inhibitor is a free-flowing powder and can be added directly to the mud system through the mixing hopper. Unlike some shale control additives, it is not necessary to pre-mix the Gilsonite Asphasol inhibitor with oil and it contains no surfactants.
Normal concentrations of Gilsonite Asphasol shale inhibitor range from 2 to 10 lb/bbl.
(5.7 to 28.5 kg/m3) for most applications.

Advantages of Gilsonite Asphasol
Asphasol application is as below:
Contains no surfactants
Premixing is not required
Inhibits swelling and water-wetting of shales
Reduces High-Temperature, High-Pressure (HTHP) fluid loss
Reduces torque and drag
Improves wall cake quality

Asphasol Physical Specification
Gilsonite natural asphalt (asphaltite) additive is a mineral bitumen hydrocarbon in granular form. Its particle size varies between -4 and -200 It is effective at bottom hole temperatures (BHTs) between 60° and 230°F (16° and 110°C). Typical additive concentrations range from -5 to -50 lb/ of cement muds.
The low specific gravity of Gilsonite powder helps improve its ability to control lost circulation. However, this feature can also cause the additive to separate to the top of thin slurries and slurries containing dispersants. Adding 2% or more bentonite to the slurry will help prevent separation.

Gilsonite Chemical Composition
The environmental granular asphalt which sizes are of 0.1/40MM This recycled granular asphalt is mostly used for new roads layers and finished lines our products are backed by the European union certificates with an SGS report on each shipment.

Asphalt granular Primary use:
This type of granulate is used for stabilizing roads (second layers) and also for the first layer, mixed with cement (2%). Bitumen emulsion (2%) or any other binding.
As a result, the roads can be constructed at less cost and these roads are less harmful to the environment and much more durable.

Gilsonite General Solubility
Gilsonite products are readily soluble without heating in aromatic solvents (Benzene, Toluene, Xylene) and in most chlorinated solvents.
It also soluble without heating in Aliphatic and low aromatic solvents (VM&P and other Naphtha, Ink Oils and Mineral Spirits), but Mixing time is longer. Without heating, the pulverized grade is recommended. Gilsonite has limited solubility in most alcohols and ketones.

Gilsonite Friendly to Water
Water-based Gilsonite is natural bitumen environmentally safe and specially formulated to protect hole shale water base drilling.
The drilling fluid serves a number of functions including taking heat away from the drill bit and facilitating the return of drill cuttings to the surface. There are three main types of drilling mud, including Gilsonite muds.

The present invention deals with the consequences of using water-based drilling Gilsonite muds. When the hydrostatic pressure of the drilling mud in the wellbore exceeds the inwardly acting pressure of the surrounding formation, the drilling mud is forced into the surrounding formation through the walls of the wellbore.

In many applications, the drilling Gilsonite mud is intended to be deposited in and/or on the wellbore wall, forming so-called “filter cake” which, amongst other things, helps to limit the invasion of formation fluids into the wellbore; reduces the risk of the wellbore collapsing during drilling and resists the escape of drilling fluids into the formation.
