Pre-designed additive for drilling fluid

The Calcium Carbonate content of Fordacal fillers and extenders is more than 98%. We source this from a pure deposit in Northern Italy, and then process it in the UK. Particularly, our marble is suitable for applications in drilling muds where purity is paramount.

Therefore, using Fordacal as an additive to drilling fluid will:

  • Help continue production by avoiding damage to the drilled rock
  • Acidise and remove potential damaging solids from boreholes

Consequently, our Fordacal portfolio offers mud chemists the option of optimising muds for loss circulation and also for well capping.

Logistics and availability for offshore drilling projects

Our plant in Somerset, United Kingdom, can manufacture a wide range of different grades, with the same high purity crystalline calcium carbonate.

We store our Fordacal in silos or transport this to strategic stock locations. We also supply offshore drilling projects directly to the customers’ required location.

You can contact our Sales Managers and ask for specifications or samples.
