Ingevity’s pine-based additive makes oilfield drilling more efficient


NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C., Dec. 18, 2018 – The benefits of Ingevity’s EnvaMul® emulsifier package are highlighted in a recently released video about oilfield service company Anchor USA, a QMax subsidiary based in Houston, Texas, that uses EnvaMul to increase drilling fluid efficiency. EnvaMul is a pine-based additive that enhances drilling rate of penetration and improves down-hole stability.

The video features representatives from Anchor USA and Ingevity, and demonstrates the value of EnvaMul in the formulation of high-performing drilling fluids in a cost-effective way. EnvaMul controls fluid loss and viscosity consistency, which ultimately boosts customers’ bottom line.
