Sodium Bromide Brine
Sodium Bromide is used to form clear-brine workover and completion fluid for densities ranging from 8.4 to 12.5 lb/gal (1007 to 1498 kg/m3). These fluids are used where waters contain hugh concentrations of bicarbonate and sulfate ions.

Sodium Bromide is used as a completion and workover fluid either by itself or with sodium chloride, bromide, or with zinc bromide. Operation fluids for offshore oil wells, such as well finishing liquid, well repair liquid, stationary liquid etc. Its main advantage is in formations containing carbonate and/or sulfate ions which give rise to precipitation in the presence of other multivalent completion or workover fluids.
All personnel handling this material must handle it as an industrial chemical, wearing protective equipment and observing the precautions as described in the Material Safety Data Sheet.
