TERRADRIL® V Rheology Modifiers for Oil-based Mud

To meet increasingly demanding global oil and gas exploration activities, Emery offers innovative drilling fluids systems. Our formulations are based on esters derived from natural resources. They are used to drill reactive geological formations and make it possible to drill highly-deviated wells where bore hole stability, lubricity and benign ecological properties are essential. Their unique ecotoxicological properties have dramatically reduced the impact of the drilling fluid on marine environments, even allowing the disposal of drilled cuttings on the sea floor with a clear conscience.
TERRADRIL® V rheology modifiers (such as thinners, thickeners and viscosifiers) support increasing rheological properties in oil and synthetic-based drilling fluids. In addition to typical low end rheology modifiers and suspension agents, Emery also offers rheology modifiers for high temperature applications.
