Baroid Quik-Trol®

QUIK-TROL® modified natural cellulosic polymer can provide filtration control in most water-based drilling fluids. QUIK-TROL additive, when added to a QUIK-GEL® or BORE-GEL® slurry, yields a drilling mud system suitable for drilling in sandy formation. QUIK-TROL additive can be added to vegetable or mineral oil to provide an oil-based fluid suspension, which can be poured into drill string directly. QUIK-TROL additive is also used in air/gel-foam drilling.
