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.
