POTASSIUM CHLORIDE (KCl)

POTASSIUM CHLORIDE (KCl)

POTASSIUM CHLORIDE (KCl) is a soluble salt that is an extremely efficient shale stabiliser when drilling hydro sensitive clays and shales. Inhibition is provided through ion exchange; the potassium ion enters between the individual clay platelets in the shale so that they are held together, thus eliminating entry of water from the drilling fluid.
