Advanced Drilling Fluid Additives
Drilling Fluid Additives
Drilling fluids make drilling possible. The right additives make it successful. Lubricants, stabilizers, surfactants, emulsifiers, wetting agents – we bring a 50-year history of advancing our industry, developing novel fluid solutions and advanced drilling fluid additives that help our customers succeed on the harshest, trickiest and most environmentally sensitive drilling frontiers.
We design our chemical drilling fluid additives to counter specific challenges like temperature, pressure and formation conditions. Practically, we ensure that critical tasks, including carrying cuttings to the surface, cooling the drill bit and stabilizing the formation, can be completed safely and efficiently with no downtime. Our products, testing capabilities and technologies are designed to support and partner with our customers.
Reactive shales can cause a multitude of borehole problems, including swelling, accretion, sticking, bit balling and poor cuttings removal. ChampionX provides chemistries to control the rheology of the mud, and thus control the problems. We offer state-of-the-art shale stabilizers of all types, for both permanent and temporary applications.
When pipes stick, costs soar. ChampionX offers pipe freeing agents and lubricants to help you prevent and resolve stuck pipe issues. Our solutions can save you the expenses of unscheduled rig time, fishing costs, drill-string damage and tool replacement.
Drilling Corrosion Inhibitors
Inhibit corrosion in dispersed water-based fluids. Our drilling corrosion inhibitors reduces corrosion in the drill string, casing and downhole tools.
