Calcium Chloride

Calcium Chloride is used as a component element in many applications within this market, including,

  • Completion Fluids to flush the drilling hole clean of solids prior to the casings being cemented in place,
  • Concrete Accelerant to the setting process, used in both primary and secondary concrete work to secure well casings, prevent contamination and dry hole plugging,
  • Drilling Muds to cool and lubricate the drill bit allowing longer bit life and reducing drilling times by up to 25%, and
  • Enhanced Oil Recovery to improve the oil extraction percentages through chemical flooding technologies.

PelletOil™ calcium chloride is a white anhydrous calcium chloride high purity pellet (94-98%), manufactured by utilising synthetic hydrochloric acid.

It is supplied in a smaller particle size specifically for oil and gas application. PelletOil™ meets ASTM D 98-05, AASHTO M144 and GOST 450-77 requirements for calcium chloride purity. ASTM classification for PelletOil™ is Type S, Grade 3 and Class B.

Zirax completion fluid specific gravities (density) all depend on whole range of a salt chemical properties and its final formula in the product.

Zirax proposes tailor made single salt completion fluids with various density ranging from 1.2 to 1.4 kg/l (10 and 12 lb. /gal) and these are compatible with most hydrocarbon wells in use. The products offered are also stable at the highest bottom-hole temperatures.
