High-Temperature Brine Viscosifier

A company seeks to increase the viscosity of brine solutions containing both mono and multivalent salts. Targeted brines may contain up to 80% weight of salt. Viscosity must stay the same up to 150°C. The thickened brine should have a yield value of the order of 1Pa (or higher) and a shear thinning behavior. The overall rheology profile should be comparable to xanthan gum solution in fresh water. The aim of the viscosity increase is to suspend solid particles.
