Drilling Fluids

Enhanced Drilling Additives

Drilling fluids are critical to maintaining wellbore control and stability throughout the drilling process. In addition, they suspend cuttings while not circulating and transport them to the surface while circulating to optimize drilling operations. Drilling fluids may be water-based, or non-aqueous-based, such as oil-based, or synthetic-based.

Our additives and custom-formulated fluid systems enhance operator drilling efficiency while minimizing costs and health, safety, and environmental (HSE) impact.

Al Moghera offers the following products:

  • Drilling Corrosion Inhibitors restrict drilling equipment failures, including tools, drill string pipes, tubulars, and other accessories.
  • Defoamers serve to limit foaming that occurs in completion and drilling fluids.
  • Foaming Agents enable the production of a foam drilling fluid.
  • Detergents act to minimize the surface tension of the liquid phase and remove drill solids.
  • Oxygen Scavengers collect and remove H2S from salt-based (brine) fluid systems.
  • Viscosifiers are thickening agents that increase the viscosity of water-based and non-aqueous-based drilling fluids, including oil-based and synthetic-based drilling fluids.

Drilling Corrosion

Al Moghera provides drilling corrosion control additives for various water-based drilling fluid systems to prevent the failure of drill string tubulars and drilling tools.


Al Moghera’s drilling detergents are an aqueous (water-based) blend of surface-active substances, agents that reduce surface tension to impede the drilled cuttings from adhering to the drill string.


Al Moghera provides defoaming agents, which are foam minimizers. Their purpose is to inhibit the foaming tendencies in drilling and completion fluids. Our defoamers additives are environmentally friendly when applied at recommended concentrations. They are known to be effective in a variety of fluids.


Al Moghera provides a comprehensive line of viscosifiers that have been proven to increase the viscosity of drilling fluids, whether they are aqueous- or non-aqueous-based, (i.e., water-based, oil-based, or synthetic-based drilling fluids). Moreover, they are designed to improve the solids-suspension and hole-cleaning capabilities of drilling fluids.
