Shale Control Additives

A fine grained, fissle, detrital sedimentary rock formed by consolidation of clay and silt sized particles into thin, relatively impermeable layers. It is the most abundant sedimentary rock. Shale can include relatively large amounts of organic material compared with other rock types and thus has the potential to become a rich hydrocarbon source rock, even though a typical shale contains just 1% organic matter. Its typical fine grained size and lack of permeability, a consequence of the alignment of its platy or flaky grains, allow shale to form a good cap rock for hydrocarbon traps. Although maximum shale inhibition is realized with oil mud, their use in some wells may not be considered practical because of other factors. These factors must be carefully evaluated in relation to the severity of the shale instability problem. Oil mud can: * Reduce the penetration rate in some formations * Limit the logging program * Affect cuttings analysis * Require special preparation and maintenance programs * Be environmentally unacceptable
