Baroid EZ-Mud® Gold

EZ-MUD® GOLD clay and shale stabilizer provides inhibition of clay and shale formations in water-based drilling fluids without substantially increasing viscosity. EZ-MUD GOLD stabilizer, when added to a QUIK-GEL® or BORE-GEL® slurry, yields an inhibitive drilling fluid system while maintaining manageable and effective fluid properties. EZ-MUD GOLD stabilizer can be mixed easily at minimal shear thereby eliminating the need for liquid emulsions.

    The use of EZ-MUD GOLD stabilizer aids or promotes the following:
  • Enhanced rheological properties of a low-solids drilling mud
  • Clay and shale stabilization to prevent swelling and/or dispersion
  • Borehole stability in water sensitive formations
  • Minimized rotational torque and circulating pressure
  • Enhancement of air-foam system capabilities
  • Enhanced core recovery in continuous wireline coring operations


  • NSF/ANSI Standard 60 certified
  • Easy dispersion and mixing with minimal shear
  • Can be used at increased concentrations to gain inhibition without producing excess viscosity
  • No petroleum distillates present
  • Breaks down chemically with bleach (sodium hypochlorite)
  • Compatible with other Baroid drilling fluid additives when added in proper sequence
  • Non-fermenting
