Sülfonatlı Asfalt

What is sulphonated asphalt

It is C26H43O9Na3 sodium sulfonated of heavy hydrocarbon or oxidized bitumen powder by passing SO4 gas and called Sulphonated Asphalt.It is asphaltic hydrocarbon that has been treated by a close cap system in specific sulphonating process to be partially soluble dispersible or emulsion in water based drilling fluids to stabilize hole shale.

Sulphonated asphalt is commonly used as an additive in drilling muds for oil and gas wells. In drilling operations, the mud serves several important functions, including lubricating the drill bit, carrying cuttings to the surface, and maintaining pressure in the well to prevent blowouts.

The sulphonated asphalt is added to drilling muds because of its excellent emulsifying and wetting properties. It can help to stabilize the mud by preventing water from separating out, and it can also help to reduce the amount of fluid loss that occurs during drilling. This is important because fluid loss can lead to formation damage, decreased drilling efficiency, and even lost circulation events.

In addition to these benefits, sulphonated asphalt can also help to improve the rheological properties of drilling muds. It can increase the viscosity of the mud, which can improve hole cleaning and cuttings removal. It can also help to reduce the amount of torque and drag that is experienced during drilling, which can reduce wear and tear on drilling equipment and improve drilling efficiency.

What is usage and application of asphalt sulphonate?

Color of sulphonated asphalt is black powder and waterfreindly mud drilling conditioner to control drag and torque.

Packing of product asphalt

We are able to pack asphalt sulphonate in 25Kg multi paper bag on pallet ,1000Kg jumbo bag,50LBS bag,PP bag

Reason of usage

Lubricate mud thus reducing torsion and drag of the formation or cutting
Seals little fractures in stressed sedimentary rock formulation.
Prevents bit and down hole assembly bailing by preferentially oil wetting the drill string.
Good cooler thus reduces the down hole with temperature fluid loss and contributes to corrosion inhibition.
Inhibits swelling clay and water wetting of shale’s
Reduces HTHP (High Temperature High Pressure) Fluid Loss
Sulponated Asphalt Improves Filter cake Quality and helps seal small fractures
Sulphonated asphalt additive (sulfonated asphalt powder) is helping to shale stabilization

Hs code and CAS number of sulphonated asphalt EC number.

MSDS of sulphonated asphalt

If inhaled move the victim into fresh air. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. If not breathing, give artificial respiration and consult a doctor immediately. Do not use mouth to mouth resuscitation if the victim ingested or inhaled the chemical.

  • Following skin contactTake off contaminated clothing immediately. Wash off with soap and plenty of water. Consult a doctor.
  • Following eye contactRinse with pure water for at least 15 minutes. Consult a doctor.
  • Following ingestionRinse mouth with water. Do not induce vomiting. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Call a doctor or Poison Control Center immediately.
