Properties

The BTC range of drilling fluid additives comprises mainly chemicals for drilling fluid systems based on water. They are high performing, contamination tolerant and temperature stable.
Biocides
Protectol® and Myacide® are Glutaraldehydes which serve the purpose of regulating microbial growth in water based muds.
Inhibitors
Basocorr® types are a special class of corrosion inhibitors that support drilling under acidic and high temperature conditions.
Flocculants / Clean-up

Successfully drilled wellbores are cleaned up after the fact with BTC’s Alcomer® flocculants.
Cleaning agents
Basoclean® and Basosol® are efficient cleaning agents to clean the drilling equipment.
Fluid loss additives
Polydrill® and Alcomer® are applied to minimize the loss of water from the drilling fluid to the formation.
Shale inhibitors
Basodrill® and Alcomer® are used to prevent shale from swelling.

Applications

BTC’s oilfield chemicals cover the complete spectrum of applications requested by the oilfield industry for the drilling process.
