Salt for the Drilling Industry

Industrial salt is used as a component of drilling fluids, primarily in the exploration for and extraction of crude oil and natural gas. Salt makes an essential contribution to the stability of the drill hole and to the lubrication and cooling of the drill head. Salt is also an important raw material for downstream steps in the processing of crude oil or for industrial water treatment.

For the particular requirements of the drilling industry, esco offers two high-quality industrial salt grades, on the basis of vacuum salt or on the basis of rock salt. Both salt grades have a very high sodium chloride content and are available in a variety of grain sizes.
