 Oil Based Drilling Chemicals and Systems




Unique Driling Fluids low toxicity invert emulsifier oil base drilling fluid system, TOTAL-EASE relies on reverse osmotic migration to control shale swelling and hyper-dehydration. The base oil, is a low toxity synthetic oil. The systems bodying agent is developed with a special organophillic clay, ORGANO-EASE. The emulsifiiers chosen rid drilling fluid engineers worries by emulsifying any formation water that may invade the system. Fluid loss is not a problem due to a special air blown colloid, LIG-TIGHT-II.  All the benefits that accompany an oil base system such as increased drilling rate, temperature stability and  low maintenence are what makes UDF's TOTAL-EASE system the perfect solution for your drilling process. Learn more about the chemistry of TOTAL EASE and its constituents.

U-DRILL-OBM is Unique's true oil mud system. It is an economical alternative to synthetic oil base systems. This system drives directional drilling where water base fluids fail to go. Problematic stuck pipe is not an issue with this system and therefore will allow you to reach your targeted depth  trouble-free. The continuous phase is usually diesel oil because of its superior performance and economical benefits. However, crudes are an option with this system and are used solely at your discretion. The system utilizes 3-5% H2O content along with our U-MUL-21 (primary emulsifier) and U-MUL-22 (secondary emulsifier). We control fluid loss in this system by utilizing our special GSUB-36 additive. CaOH is used in this system along with a special true oil organophillic clay, U-VIS-OB. Weighting materials are used to optimize density and wetting agents such as our surfactant UQO-WET ensures solid wettability and stability. Yielding is enhanced with UNI-YIELD-II, designed specifically for true oil mud systems. Conversely, viscosity can be decreased with our special thinner UQO-THIN.
