Product Name: WETOIL Wetting Agent

Product Information: WETOIL Wetting Agent


WETOIL is a very effective wetting agent and thinner for oil based fluids. It is comprised of fatty acid based polyamide and complex esters, phospholipids derived from soybeans.


WETOIL is designed to be used as a wetting and thinning agent in formulating invert emulsion drilling fluids. It provides high emulsification and oil wetting properties. WETOIL is an effective additive for reconditioning existing oil based mud with high viscosity and/or wet barite. WETOIL is also effective in improving the mud’s resistance to contamination.

Normal applications of WETOIL require 2 to 4 lbs/ bbl (5.7 to 11.4 kg/m). Initial treatment levels depends on the drilling environment and mud formulation


WETOIL oil wets weighting agents and drill solids to prevent them from becoming water wet.
