Drilling & Completion

Image of oil rig workers - DuPont has developed products specifically for drilling and completion operations.

Putting the science of DuPont to work for our customers has allowed us to develop products specifically for drilling and completion operations.  Whether you're focused on flow assurance, well stimulation and improved recovery or looking for high performance materials for downhole equipment, DuPont has the solution.

Flow Assurance

DuPont™ Glycolic Acid is a highly effective aid for flow assurance and well rehabilitation needs.  Typical applications include cleaning, descaling and acidizing.

DuPont™ StreaMax™ is a multilayered coating system specifically developed to combat the build up of scale, waxes and asphaltenes in producing wells.

High Performance Elastomers

High performance seals, made of DuPont™ Viton® fluoroelastomers and DuPont™ Kalrez® perfluoroelastomer parts help extend the mean time between failure of drilling and completion equipment repair in harsh downhole operating conditions.

Performance Lubricants

DuPont™ Krytox® performance lubricants meet the challenges of the Oil & Gas industry in applications such as electrical submersible pumps (ESP's) and other downhole equipment as well as rotating rig equipment e.g. top drives, gear boxes and pumps.  Krytox® provides highly specialized, inert, nontoxic lubrication solutions that perform even in extreme environments.

Well Stimulation Additives

DuPont™ Capstone® provides unsurpassed surface tension reduction and can be used in combination with existing surfactants in well stimulation fluids for improved recovery.

DuPont™ Polyglycolic Acid is a crystalline polyester used as a time release/delay or diverting agent.
DuPont™ Glycolic Acid is a highly effective, less corrosive, non-flammable option when compared to other commonly used acids.
