Formations can be damaged if they are exposed to water without clay control additives. Common clays like smectite can swell exponentially, closing off pores in the formation, or in the worst case, causing deconsolidation. Other clays like illite or kaolinite can migrate, resulting in the plugging of pore throats. Both these damage mechanisms can be difficult to remediate if they are caused, but are also easy to prevent by using the correct clay control additive for the formation. We offer effective clay control solutions to meet your specific formation needs.
