Drilling fluid additives, Barite, grout bags and Fann equipment for the Oil and Gas industry

A premium drilling fluid is a crucial insurance and an indispensable part of a trouble-free operation. Since the early days of the Oil & Gas Industry, minerals have been used to control the viscosity and weight of drilling fluids.

Oilwell Drilling Products


Barite is a dense mineral, which makes it an ideal weighting agent for drilling fluids in oil and gas exploration; it helps to prevent blowouts and well collapses by maintaining the hydrostatic pressure in the well.

Barite is a finely ground natural Barium Sulphate, which consists of minimum 85% BaSO4, and is used as a weighting agent in water-based and oil-based drilling fluids. The product’s quality meets or surpasses the API 13A, section 7 specifications.


Oilwell Drilling Fluid Additives

Cebo’s position as a leading supplier of minerals is supplemented with a wide variety of different chemicals, fluid-loss additives, viscosifiers, lost circulation materials. Quality control and 24/7 delivery service is key to ensuring efficient use at the wellsite.

Calcium Carbonate (CaCo3) composes grinded Calcite minerals and is used as an acid-soluble weighting agent in drilling fluids.

Cebo operates supply bases with storage facilities in IJmuiden, Aberdeen, Great Yarmouth and Peterhead from where we can supply our customers 24/7. In IJmuiden, we operate fully equipped Mudplants where we can mix different types of drilling fluids, with a storage capacity of 8000 cbm. Furthermore, we can re-condition and shear drilling fluids. Our facilities have quay access and we can therefore load drilling fluids or bulk materials like Barite and Bentonite directly onto supply vessels.

At Aberdeen’s Pocra Quay, our silo plant boasts a storage capacity of over 4000mt - the largest of its kind in the UK.
