Xanthan Gum functionality in Oil Field

Xanthan Gum provides optimal viscosity characteristics Fluids in drilling, work-over,and completion operations. Optimum fluid performance is achieved when viscosity is minimized at high flow rates(such as at the drilling bit)and when viscosity is increased at low flow rates and under static conditions.

In addition to providing optimal viscosity characteristics, xanthan gum regains structure when circulation ceases.This property prevents setting of particles and is unique among hydrocolloid polymers commonly used in oil field applications.Sheer thinning viscosity characteristics with extended power behavior closely approximate the ideal viscosity profile for fluids used in the following applications.
