Formate brine make non-corrosive drilling and completion fluid formations that is stable in HTHP operations. Formate brine stabilizes shales, extend polymer stability and enhance borehole stability. Formate brine improves well productivity with excellent compatibility at reservoir conditions with reservoir fluids. Formate brine provides an excellent chloride free, environmentally benign, and alternative to traditional high density brines.
Sodium formate fluids are excellent shale stabilisers for water-sensitive clay/shale formations and clay-containing sandstones. They provide an environmentally safe alternative to chloride brines.
All personnel handling this material must handle it as an industrial chemical, wearing protective equipment and observing the precautions as described in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS)
