Improving the safety and efficiency of oil & gas operations
We make oil & gas operations less hazardous for the environment
Weighting agents for drilling & cementing
Elkem oilfield drilling fluid materials are value-added materials which are customer-focused and solution-driven, respecting all specifications, environmental regulations and the strictest quality assurance criteria.
Microsilica products for oilwell cementing
Oilfield cementing involves the placement of a solid and impermeable setting material that supports and isolates the different well zones, ensuring well-integrity. Petroleum operators and their service providers use a wide array of cementing chemical additives to ensure safe and reliable cement placement across the wellbore and long-term zonal isolation.
Silicones to control foam in all oil & gas industry processes
Silicone Foam Control solutions to improve productivity, quality and safety from the drill to the fill
Oil & Gas exploration, drilling (onshore and offshore), extraction, separation, transportation and refining are carried out in extremely different conditions which can be highly variable. From oceans to deserts and from the tropics to the arctic, the particular conditions as well as the characteristics of the petroleum materials, require the correct products to perform for the end user.
Acid stimulation processes for well stimulation
As new sources of oil & gas become increasingly difficult to access, oilwell stimulation has become a key leverage to increase the capacity of existing wells and prolong their production life cycles. These techniques seek to increase the flow of oil & gas by opening new channels to efficiently direct all available resources from the production area into the wellbore.
High-performance products for oilfield applications
The oil & gas industry must deal with very demanding challenges in all its activities, including excessive equivalent circulating density, tripping, hole cleaning, sag, gas migration, high-fluid loss and reduced production rates. To meet these multiple challenges, we offer a wide array of cost-effective products and systems, from drilling fluids to cementing and stimulation products.
