Geochemical Research


Unique Drilling Fluids shale characterization research investigates cuttings from all over the world. We take special interest in identifying the composition and pinpointing those minerals responsible for rheological problems. Once we identify those components we recommend a shale inhibitor that will ease the end users drilling operation.
