Alkalinity is one of the most important chemical properties of drilling fluids. But what it is? And how does it affect drilling fluid performance?

Alkalinity is the acid neutralizing power of a fluid. In drilling fluid testing, alkalinity can be measured on either whole mud (designated with a subscript "df") or on the filtrate (designated with a subscript "f"), as collected with a filter press. The data collected from the alkalinity test can also be used to estimate the concentrations of hydroxyl (OH-), carbonate (CO3-2) and bicarbonate (HCO3-) ions in the drilling fluid.
