SHALE-X®DP (dry silicate blend shale stabilizer)

SHALE-X®DP (dry silicate blend shale stabilizer)


SHALE-X®DP is a high-performance blend of silicate components with the silicate module of at least 2.0 that provides inhibition and stabilization of highly reactive shales and clays.

It is a cost-effective solution to superior shale inhibition, wellbore stability and in-gauge drilling.

SHALE-X®DP molecules act by forming a polymerized inorganic complex on the shale surfaces thus building a physical and chemical barrier to fluid invasion.

This product is compatible with most of the mud additives and also can increase overall polymer mud temperature stability by 20-30C.


  • cost-effective inhibition of reactive shales
  • prevents solids build-up
  • promotes wellbore stability


  • preserves cutting integrity
  • minimizes mud discharge and dilution rates
  • adds 20-30C to polymer temperature stability

Recommended treatment

5-7 kg/m3 (14-20 ppb). The product is normally added through the mud hopper. Pilot testing is recommended.

Typical properties

Free-flowing white powder


Please refer to the MSDS for specific instructions


SHALE-X®DP is packaged in 50lbs (22.7 kg) bags
