Product Information: RP GHM HT ASPHALT BITUMEN

DESCRIPTION
RP GHM HT Asphalt Bitumen filtration control additive is naturally occurring high softening point asphalt bitumen that is mined in the Uintah Basin, Utah USA. RP GHM HT Asphalt Bitumen can be used for high temperature, high pressure filtration control in oil base mud systems. At high temperature and pressure RP GHM HT Asphalt Bitumen can be extruded into small formation fractures to form a sealing system that will render shale formations cohesive thus preventing sloughing.

APPLICATIONS
RP GHM HT Asphalt Bitumen stabilizes shale formations and will reduce API and HPHT fluid loss. RP GHM HT Asphalt Bitumen improves emulsion stability, thermal stability, and fluid suspension properties of most oil base drilling fluid systems. Typical application rates for most oil base drilling fluids range 5-15 lbs/bbl (14.2-42.6 kg/m). Addition rates will vary depending on formation characteristics and temperature. RP GHM HT Asphalt Bitumen is insoluble in water.
