PAC-L™, modified natural cellulosic polymer, provides filtration control in most water-based drilling fluids without substantially increasing viscosity. PAC-L, when added to a QUIK-GEL® or BORE-GEL® slurry, yields a drilling mud system suitable for drilling in sandy formation. PAC-L can be added to vegetable or mineral oil to provide an oil-based fluid suspension, which can be poured into drill string directly.
