Report Description


Drilling fluids plays a very important role in oil and gas drilling exploration activities. It is also called drilling mud. Drilling fluid is the mixture of water, oil, clay, & various chemicals. While drilling it perform numerous functions. For example, the drilling mud cools the drill bit and lubricate its teeth, it carries the drill cuttings to surface and reduce the drill pipe stuck problem. Mud maintain the hydrostatic pressure slightly above the formation pressure to prevent formation fluids from entering into the wellbore.

The drilling fluid market is driven by a number of factors. New oil reserves discoveries across the globe, growing investment in oil exploration activities, and swelling shale gas activities in U.S., are some of them. In major countries such the U.S., Russia, and Canada, the oil and gas industry is determined to install many rigs for exploration, and these are expected to drive the market for drilling fluids in near future.

In recent years, it has been seen that, exploration activities in the Gulf of Mexico region and other regions around the world are progressively moving towards deepwater ocean regions. The deepwater oil field development generally arises in the form of high-risk, and long-duration drilling project, which make them highly expensive. Water depth, well depth, reservoir pressure and temperature, field size, and distance from shore are the major cost drivers of offshore drilling. It is estimated that for such deepwater activities, drilling cost typically represent about 30% to 40% of total well costs. Therefore, the high cost for drilling activities may hurdle the growth of the market.
