Clear Brine Fluids Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Clear brine fluid is a solution used for servicing wells in the oil and gas sector. They are preferred over drilling muds due to being relatively cheaper and effective. Clear brine fluids find applications in deep, high-pressure oil wells where conventional drilling muds can block the formations. In addition, they are also used in oil sands and deep water wells. The market for clear brine fluids is divided into two types, viz. single salt and multi salt fluids. The market for clear brine fluids was mainly driven by drilling fluids market. Clear brine fluids are used to facilitate oil and...
