Potassium Formate


The drilling fluid system prepared with potassium formate has the outstanding advantages of strong inhibition, good compatibility, environmental protection and reservoir protection.

Product Details

Potassium formate, as a weighting agent for drilling and completion fluid base fluid, has the following characteristics:

⑴、The solubility of potassium formate in water is very high and the mass fraction of Potassium formate saturated solution can reach 76% and the dissolution is rapid.

⑵、The activity of Potassium formate aqueous solution is low. Formate can achieve low activity of aqueous solution. In the presence of Semipermeable membrane, the activity of drilling and completion fluid is an important factor to maintain formation stability.
