Clear brine fluids are salt-based solutions that find applications in completion processes and drilling operations for petroleum and gas sector. It also aids to control high-temperature and high-pressure in the reservoir during conventional drilling processes further reducing the damage and hazards. Key raw materials including sodium, calcium, cesium, chlorine, potassium, and bromine are used in the manufacture of multiple types of clear brine fluids.

Depleting natural gas and crude oil sources are forcing companies to increase their focus towards alternative sources of energy that will support the product share over the projected timeframe. Industry players involve in developing energy products from unconventional resources including shale gas/oil, gas hydrates, coal bed methane and tight gas sands. The product requirement for the extraction of such sources from the reserves will accentuate the volume share.

Increasing consumer preference and rising production of shale gas in the countries including the U.S., China and Argentina will positively influence the oil and gas industry size. For instance, according to U.S. Energy Information Administration, in 2017, the shale gas production registered over 18,589 Billion Cubic Feet as compared to 17,032 Billion Cubic Feet in 2016. Proliferating exploration activities of shale gas reserves in countries including UK and Canada will considerably stimulate the clear brine fluids market.

Potassium chloride accounted for over 20% share in 2018 owing to the increased application in oil and gas sector. These brines are widely used in the drilling and completion process for stabilization of water-sensitive shale/clays from high pressure developed in the reservoirs. They also serve as an economical source of potassium for inhibitive water-based completion and drilling fluids. Increasing investments for gas exploration in countries with adequate reserves will further escalate the product size.

Calcium chloride will register for considerable share in the market owing to the high requirement of workover fluids and completion fluids for drilling operations. The product is majorly preferred for industrial use owing to the increased cost effectivity as compared to the alternative brine fluids. Calcium chloride is majorly used in workover operations and oilfield completion in the oil and gas sector. The inhibitive properties of calcium chloride in clear brine fluids for inhibit clay swelling, migration and hydration of swelling clays will support the product size.

Calcium bromide will witness steady growth in the clear brine fluids market share owing to the density range from 8.4 lb/gal to 15.2 lb/gal suitable for improved operations in drilling rigs. Increased resistance to the formation of chloride ion will stimulate its application in oil and gas industry. Calcium bromide-based brine fluids are employed as a workover, completion, packer, or spike fluid in several applications for drilling. The fluid is extensively used for reducing formation damage due to clay swelling and dispersion that will accentuate the product share over the forecast timeframe.
