Calcium chloride is used as a clear brine single salt fluid in densities ranging from 1006 kg/m3 to 1390 kg/m3 (8.4 to 11.6 lb/gal). The divalent calcium ion (Ca+2) inhibits clay swelling, dispersion and migration. Calcium chloride brines are one of the most economical brines used in oilfield completion and workover operations.
TETRA has been developing and delivering high quality, innovative clear brine fluids (CBFs) and related products and services to the oil and gas industry for well over two decades.
With seven North American and three European calcium chloride production facilities and a significant global marketing presence, TETRA is the leading worldwide supplier of calcium chloride.
