partially hydrolyzed polyacrylamide powder for drilling

The Purpose of Drilling Fluid Additives and How They Work

Partially hydrolyzed polyacrylamide (PHPA) is a widely used polymer in the oil and gas industry due to its lesser cost and good water solubility. PHPA is used as a functional additive in water-based drilling fluids. The PHPA mud system stabilizes shale formations and influences cuttings and wellbore stability.

Partially Hydrolyzed Polyacrylamide PHPA Shale Inhibitor / Viscosifier / Flocculant Product Description PHPA (powder form) is a readily dispersible additive designed to provide cuttings encapsulation and shale stabilization in freshwater to saltwater drilling fluids ranging from low solids to weighted muds.

PHPA is a co-polymer of anionic character and high molecular weight. It is a water-soluble polymer, which is primarily used as a highly efficient fluid loss reducer, Viscosifier and protective colloid for shale’s and cutting in fresh water, calcium, sodium brines and KCL mud systems.
