Our extensive knowledge and experience in this demanding industry sector includes supplying fluids that help our customers meet the latest government and industry regulations for use of materials in offshore exploration.
SIP has been supplying fluids to the global drilling industry for more than 15 years. Our products are currently being used in seas and oceans around Europe, Africa and the Middle East. We are also an active member of the European Oilfield Speciality Chemicals Association (EOSCA).
We market, supply and blend an extensive range of base oils for formulating fluids used in international offshore drilling and production operations. These include low viscosity and sheen free fluids with trace aromatic levels, high flash points, and low pour points – all of which exhibit very low toxicity to marine life.
For example, our SIPDRILL range has minimal environmental impact while exhibiting very high standards of occupational hygiene. Depending on the nature of the oil, SIPDRILL fluids can be highly biodegradable and demonstrate their purity by meeting the US FDA 21 CFR 178.3620 (b) standard for incidental food contact products.
