Water Based Mud (WBM)
A drilling fluid (mud) in which water or saltwater is the major liquid phase as well as the wetting (external) phase.
Category Description
Barite A high-grade API barium sulfate specially processed use as a drilling fluid weighting material
Bentonite A material composed of clay minerals, predominantly montmorillonite with minor amounts of other smectite group minerals, commonly used in drilling fluids.
Biocides An additive that kills bacteria.
Corrosion Inhibitors An additive that decreases the corrosion rate of drilling tools.
Defoamers An additive that removes the bubble of drilling fluids.
Drilling Polymers A kind of synthetic polymer that be used in most of drilling fluids.
Emulsifiers An additive that be used in preparation and maintenance of an emulsion mud
Filtration Control Agents An additive that reduces filtration volume of drilling fluids.
Flocculants An additive that causes a dispersed colloidal system to coagulate and form flocs.
Foaming Agents An additive used in preparation of foam used as the drilling fluid.
Lost Circulation Materials An additive that reduces and eventually prevents the flow of drilling fluid into a weak, fractured or vugular formation.
Lubricants An additive that reduces torque and extends drilling bit and drilling tool's life.
