Oil Drilling Grade Xanthan Gum

XanthanGum is a heteropolysaccharide derived from the fermentation of sugars by the Xanthomonas campestris bacterium with below good characteristics:
Dissolve easily in both hot and cold water;
Compatible with a variety of products;
Highly efficient thickener;
Good pseudoplastic (shear thinning);
Maintains viscosity over a wide range of temperatures and pH fluctuations.

In the petroleum industry, Xanthan Gum can increase the drilling fluid suspension capacity which can help significantly improve the oil production efficiency, because Xanthan Gum has a strong ability to thicken, resist salt and pollution. Especially in the special environment, such as the ocean, beach, high-halogen layer and permafrost, It can effectively avoid the occurrence of blowout events during drilling operations, and the function is very obvious.

In addition, the low concentration of Xanthan Gum solution can maintain the water-based well. The viscosity of the liquid makes the drilling fluid have good suspension performance, which can prevent the good wall from collapsing, inhibit the formation blowout, and facilitate the discharge of the gravel undercutting.

The grinding resistance of Xanthan Gum is relatively small, which can help save energy and reduce consumption.

And Xanthan Gum has high salt and high-temperature resistance, which can increase the oil recovery rate of the oil field by about 10%.

Furthermore, Agglomerated Granular Xanthan Gum and Xanthan Gum with Dispersing Agent are widely used in technical industry and Oil Drilling industry can be provided by SINOCMC.
