Drilling Fluids

Drilling fluids must effectively provide several characteristics that are essential for a successful drilling operation including, carrying cuttings to the surface, preventing drill-bit clogging, providing lubrication, inhibiting formation damage and optimum fluid weighting. Providing these key characteristics across the range of oil and water-based drilling fluids requires a broad range of properties including, emulsification, foaming, defoaming, wetting, dispersion and lubrication.


The drilling fluid components offered by Lankem can be used to formulate oil or water-soluble systems which can be effective at providing protection of wells and water handling systems. These products are based on phosphate esters, imidazolines, alkanolamides.
