Ingidol DT-1 is used in the process of drilling to reduce balling on drill bit and BHA, to reduce surface tension and increase the efficiency of drill cuttings transport. Ingidol DT-1 can be used in fresh water base, sea water base, and salt-saturated mud solutions. It contributes to enhancement of the mechanical drilling speed, reducing friction of drilling tools with wellbore walls. It has no effect on characteristics of drilling fluid.
The effective concentration of Ingidol DT-1 ranges from 0.5 to 1.5 l/m3. When drilling into highly viscous clays, it is recommended to bring it to the concentration maximum to 5 l/m3 to reduce the processes of balling on drill bit and BHA. In case of high concentration, to increase the efficiency, it is recommended to use defoamer Gaspen-Silicon.
