Oil-Based Muds Maximize Performance

Oil-based muds provide numerous benefits to enhance drilling efficiency with minimal maintenance. They are inherently lubricious and inhibitive, maximizing drilling rates with superior tolerance to contaminants. Oil-based mud systems are adjusted for superior performance and cost efficiency through system options and additive selection.

Oil-based mud systems feature selects components for desired properties. A typical oil-based mud consists of the base oil, brine, lime, an emulsifier, a wetting agent, a viscosifier, and a filtration control additive. Supplemental additives may be used to address specific drilling challenges, and PDT Drilling Fluids offers a full suite of additive options to customize a system to the demands of the well.
