Guar Gum in Oil Field Applications

  • Industrial grade Guar gum powder are use in oil well fracturing, oil well stimulation, mud drilling and industrial applications and preparations as a stabilizer, thickener and suspending agent.
  • It is a natural, fast hydrating dispersible guar gum and is diesel slurriable.
  • In the oil field industry, guar gum is used as a surfactant, synthetic polymer and deformer ideally suited for all rheological requirements of water-based and brine-based drilling fluids.
  • High viscosity Guar Gum products are used as drilling aids in oil well drilling, geological drilling and water drilling.
  • These products are used as viscosifiers to maintain drilling mud viscosities that enable drilling fluids to remove drill waste from deep holes.
  • Guar gum products also reduce friction in the holes, and so minimising power requirements. Some Guar Gum products act to minimise water loss should occur in broken geological formations.
