Emulsifiers

Create a homogeneous mixture (an emulsion) of two insoluble liquids. Fatty acid and amine based chemicals are used in oil base drilling fluids. Detergents and soaps, organic acids and water based surfactants are used for water base drilling fluids. Emulsifiers may be anionic (negatively charged), non-ionic (neutral) or cationic (positively charged) chemicals, depending on whether they are used as primary or secondary emulsifiers.

For more information on emulsifiers please contact us.

Filtration Control Additives

These products reduce fluid loss of a drilling fluid in various operating conditions including water base drilling systems, oil base drilling systems, high temperature and high temperature drilling environments.

Flocculants

Are used to increase viscosity for improved hole cleaning, to increase bentonite yield and to clarify or de-water low solids drilling fluids. Flocculants cause colloidal particles in suspension to group into clusters or flocs causing solids to settle out. Flocculants commonly used in the oilfield include:

Gelling Agents and Viscosifiers

Used to increase viscosity for better hole cleaning and suspension of solids.

Loss Circulation Materials (LCM)

The primary function of Loss Circulation Materials is to physically plug the zone in the formation that is losing drilling fluids. Commonly used products offered by RPMinerals include:

Lubricants and Spotting Agents

Reduce the coefficient of friction in drillind fluid systems and decrease torque and drag. Products offered by RPMinerals include:

Thinning Agents

Modify the relationship between viscosity and percentage of solids in a drilling fluid. Thinning agents can be used to reduce gel strength to improve pumpability of a drilling fluid. Thinning agents function as a deflocculant to prevent the flocculation of clay particles which produce high viscosity and gel strength.
Products offered by RPMinerals include
