Dow is driving innovations in chemistry and materials science with a variety of additives that can help tailor cement slurry formulations, no matter how remote the location or severe the environment at the drilling site.
EMBARK™ Viscosifiers & Rheology Modifiers – Advanced drilling fluid additives to help improve drilling and completion operations across a range of downhole environments: Polyanionic, cellulose-based additives that control filtrate in waterborne drilling fluids and function as thickening agents in drilling fluids to enhance your product’s quality and performance due to their pseudoplasticity, salt tolerance, film forming and water retention capabilities.
EMBARK™ Shale Inhibitors – Ensure better stability downhole and prevent washouts: Dow's water soluble glycol ether and polyglycol based shale inhibitors help to reduce the swelling of shale formations and the dispersion of shale in the drilling fluid while decelerating wellbore instability and stuck pipe. EMBARK Shale Inhibitors are available across a wide cloud point temperature range for all brine types.
EMBARK™ Surfactants – Anionic and nonionic surfactants for a range of oilfield applications: Anionic & Nonionic surfactants that can increase oil recovery by lowering surface tension between oil and the reservoir rock and offer excellent wetting, emulsifying and dispersing properties in a range of oilfield chemicals.
EMBARK™ Advanced Drilling Fluid Additives – Solutions for drilling high-temperature, high-pressure wells: These advanced drilling fluids are specifically designed to protect equipment and enhance drilling operations in higher temperature and higher pressure environments.
EMBARK™ Dispersants – Improve drilling fluid efficiency while reducing your operational costs: Dow's EMBARK™ dispersants will lower the viscosity of the drilling mud allowing more solid weighing agent load in the mud for better pumpability In addition you’ll use less horsepower and improve the reliability of operations all while reducing operational costs and your environmental footprint.
SYNALOX & UCON Fluids & Lubricants – High performance, water-soluble polyglycols with unique properties: Offering High performance solutions with a high viscosity index, excellent lubricity, excellent stability and other advantages.
