Drilling Fluids

Horizontal Directional Drilling

Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) is a trenchless solution used for installing and replacing underground pipes. Utilizing drilling fluids in HDD assists in the removal of cuttings from the hole. Further assisted lubrication also cools and transmits all hydraulic energy to the bit.

With the use of proper drilling fluid, not only would it stabilize the formation of the trench during the drilling process, but it would also reduce the excessive amount of torque and drag produced. Plus, using proper fluids can significantly prevent site work delays and risks such as heavy stress on drilling equipment and hole collapse. Improvement of work activity can be taken into an advantage as incorporating the right drilling fluid improves cleaning and drilling rate efficiency.

Siam Minerals provides services with project-based mud solutions involving products catered especially for HDD projects. Clay stabilizers, detergents, thinning agents, viscosifiers and fluid loss control agents are made available for HDD, as well as HDD technology adapted products such as high yield bentonite materials, prime drilling agents, and proper testing equipment from Ofite. With the right tools at hand, Siam Minerals will ensure that our services in Professional Mud Engineering and Technical Support will be made efficient for all forms of HDD solutions.

Deep Foundation

A deep foundation is a method of excavation that involves loads from structures from compressible soils or fills to be transported on to much stronger soils that are less compressible or at a much-desired space with specified functional reasons. Deep foundations are generally utilized for foundation conditions of either basement, piles, shafts, and so forth. The design and construction of the pit during a deep foundation excavation can result in a much complex scale due to the amount of space expansion that comes with underground excavation. In order to manage deep foundation projects, drilling fluids are used accordingly to create support for boring and excavation methods.

With deep foundation projects, SIAM Industrial Minerals provides various high-quality product ranges for all deep foundation solutions. From drilling fluids, bentonites, and polymers, we understand what’s best to provide for you to ensure for optimum performance for all deep foundation and engineering needs.

Tunneling

Tunnels play a critical role in the ongoing delivery and maintenance of the infrastructure required to support our modern world. Design and construction of tunnels present some of the most daunting challenges in the geoengineering field. Tunnel engineering is used in design and construction of tunnels in urban as well as remote areas. Tunneling often presents situations requiring technical skills, commitment, and practical knowledge, in order to achieve a successful project outcome.

The aspects of tunneling encompasses a variety of other engineering fields mainly by incorporating functions from mechanical, civil, electrical, and geotechnical engineering for a variety of projects involving underground work. By using advanced modeling technology with a continuum of 2D/3D features and other new and traditional practical design methods used to achieve the best tunneling solutions for each project stage, including pre-construction and construction to be used in major construction work like bored tunneling and subaqueous tunnels.

Pipe Jacking

Siam Industrial Materials also offers their expertise in Pipe Jacking, another trenchless solution aside from Horizontal Directional Drilling where installation involves connecting pipe strings from their launch shaft until it reaches to the required destination and length. Pipe strings will be pushed up with a hydraulic jack led by a cutter that is connected at the start of the pipe string, aligning the launch shaft to be positioned towards the target shaft’s direction.

Construction projects involving new sewer components for relining and replacement are best suited for Pipe Jacking. Not only that, Pipe Jacking is a beneficial method of installation especially for oil pipelines, electricity and telecommunication, gas and water, as well as culverts and subways.

Oil & Gas, Geothermal Exploration

The industry’s form of harnessing energy from oil and gas heavily involves the harvest of petroleum as their largest product volume sourced from a plethora of materials, including plastics, solvents, and fertilizers. By combining drilling fluids for this form of operation, better lubrication and cooling will be provided for the drilling bits which will further aid the support of the walls of holes made when transportation of the cuttings are conducted.

Proper fluid lubrication reduces the risk of events that includes chances of project setbacks and fatality. Combining fluid with oil and gas exploration prevents the potential collapse of the walls. Drilling rates would also be improved significantly with the reduced possibility of lost circulation and prevent the increase of torque and drag.

Siam Minerals offers products best suited for the needs of any oil and gas exploration projects. Ranging from drilling detergent and lubricant agent, we also provide special additives constructed with high salt resistance made for brackish and hard make up water. In addition to that, other products include Bentonite Conform Spec with API 13 A, as well as fluid loss control agents and viscosifier, are made available for future oil and gas exploration projects.
