TERRADRIL® S Borehole Cleaners for Drilling Applications

Drilling mud and associated contaminants such as pipe dope, rust, scale and other solid materials must be removed for successful drilling both onshore and offshore. Insufficient clean up can lead to problems such as lower mud recovery, higher costs, reduced productivity and increased rig time. TERRADRIL® S bore hole cleaners from Emery Oleochemicals are effective cleaning agents for metal surfaces, equipment, and drill and casing cleaning.

Emery's contribution to the increasingly demanding activities in global oil and gas exploration is our innovative drilling fluids systems. Our formulations, based on esters derived from natural resources, are used to drill reactive geological formations and make it possible to drill highly-deviated wells where borehole stability, lubricity and benign ecological properties are essential. Our TERRADRIL S products possess unique ecotoxicological properties that have dramatically reduced the impact of drilling fluid on marine environments, even allowing the disposal of drilled cuttings on the sea floor with a clear conscience.
