SODIUM BICARBONATE, commonly referred to as Bicarb, is used in water based fluids as a source of bicarbonate ions. Bicarbonate ions precipitate calcium and reduce pH. SODIUM BICARBONATE is principally used to treat cement contamination.
Sodium Chloride (NaCl) is a widely available commercial chemical that can be used as a weighting agent to increase fluid density up to 1.2sg (10lb / gal). It is predominately used for formulating clear, solid free work-over and completion fluids. Sodium chloride can also provide inhibition to formations containing water sensitive clays and shales.
