Abstract
The drilling industry is motivated to develop high performance clay swelling inhibitors with good biodegradability and low toxicity. In this study, the non-ionic surfactant glycyrrhizin was obtained as Glycyrrhiza glabra root extract (GGRE) as a clay swelling inhibitor. The swelling inhibitive property of the biosurfactant was systematically evaluated through various experiments including mud making, filtration, shale cuttings recovery,...
