Mineral exploration

Minerals Exploration represents one of the largest and most challenging markets in the industrial drilling industry. This is a result of several factors including extreme geologic conditions, operator requirements, drilling methods and environmental concerns. These and other elements place a tremendous degree of importance on the drilling fluids utilized in coring and drilling operations.

Baroid IDP has long been a worldwide leader for drilling fluid applications in the Minerals Exploration industry. Baroid IDP has expertise in mineral drilling environments worldwide, from North and South America to Asia and Australia.

Clay/Shale stabilizers

EZ MUD® - Polymer emulsion
Primarily used as a borehole stabilizer to prevent reactive shale and clay from swelling and sloughing

EZ MUD® GOLD – Clay/Shale stabilizer
Provides inhibition of clay and shale formations in water-based drilling fluids without substantially increasing viscosity

EZ MUD® DP – Borehole stabilizing dry polymer
With its high molecular weight and optimum charge density, EZ-MUD DP polymer provides excellent borehole stability through a coating mechanism (encapsulation)

EZ MUD® PLUS – Polymer emulsion
Primarily used as a viscosifier and borehole stabilizer to prevent reactive shales and clays from swelling and sloughing


Miscellaneous products

CORE-LUBE™ Core barrel lubricant
A natural linseed-based soft soap is used as a core barrel lubricant on diamond core drills

AQUA-CLEAR® PFD – Phosphate-free dispersant
Provides superior mud and sediment removal from the producing formation and gravel pack

NO-SAG® - Suspension Enhancer
Used to enhance the carrying capacity of both clay and polymer-based drilling fluids without significantly increasing the viscosity of the slurry

CON DET™ - Wetting agent
A blend of anionic surfactants designed to counteract the sticking tendencies of clays, thereby reducing wall packing, bit balling, booting-off and formations of mud rings

IDP-605 -  Torque reducer
Helps to provide friction reduction and improve lubrication characteristics of water-based drilling fluids

PENETROL® - Wetting agent
a water miscible, non-ionic surfactant designed to counteract the sticking tendencies of clay

SODA ASH – Alkalinity agent
Sodium carbonate, used to condition and soften make-up water and to raise pH
