Choline Chloride in Clay Stabilization for the Oil and Natural Gas Industries
Recently oil Drilling Companies had replace Potassium Chloride (KCL) with Choline Chloride (also known as 2-hydroxyethyl-trimethyl ammonium hydroxide).

Potassium Chloride (KCL) which is used in preventing the swelling of clay as a temporary clay stabilizer. However, the use of KCL in drilling carries environmental concerns as clorides do not degrade and can enter surface water carrying heavy metal including cadmium and mercury.

Choline chloride offer an attractive, effective and more environmentally responsible alternative than other clay stabilizers. MEDEN PHARMA PVT LTD's Oil Drilling Grade Choline chloride reduces the amount of chlorides released into the environment up to 70 to 75% when compared to KCL.

When using Choline chlorie, the mass fraction is as low as 1%-2%, while inorganic salt is over 3%. Therefore, by using choline chlorie in petro drilling, the inhibitory effect is better. It's compatible with other drilling auxiliaries, non-toxic and biodegradable. It's a excellent petro drilling auxiliary. Choline Chloride can stable the shaft and deliver bit cuttings, increase the underground safety and machine's rotate speed.
