Precision Tuning of Drilling Mud’s Viscosity and Density

Summary: NEUMAN & ESSER‘s (NEA) Grinding & Classifying systems grind bentonite and barite for the oil and gas industry with maximum precision and economic efficiency. This is the only means to fully exploit the extraordinary material’s properties for use in drilling fluids.

Drilling fluids are added to the wellbore to facilitate the drilling process. Improvements in drilling technologies, including more efficient and effective drilling fluids, allow for drilling deeper, longer and more challenging wells. While the technology and chemistry of drilling fluids have become much more complex, the concept has remained identical. Drilling fluids are essential for drilling success, both maximizing recovery and minimizing the time it takes to extract the first oil.

The increased demand of drilling fluids is associated with higher expectations of the additives. Within the...
