CBM & Geothermal

The use of drilling fluid additives can have a huge impact on drilling performance in geotechnical drilling. AMC’s geotechnical drilling fluid range includes several bentonite alternatives, environmentally friendly products, drilling additives and grouts. These products can assist with stabilizing unconsolidated and abrasive grounds, such as flowing sand or gravel, and aid with improving sample recovery.

  • AMC BEN XTRA™

    AMC BEN XTRA™ is a premium grade Wyoming sodium bentonite which meets or surpasses the API 13A test specifications for drilling grade bentonite.

  • AMC BEN™

    AMC BEN™ is a high quality sodium bentonite for use in mineral exploration, water well and directional drilling.

  • AMC BENTONITE PELLETS R30™

    AMC BENTONITE PELLETS R30™ are compressed tablets made from highly swelling sodium bentonite coated with a biodegradable non-sticking film that retards the hydration time and when placed forms a flexible, non-toxic impermeable seal. AMC BENTONITE PELLETS R30™ has the advantage of achieving greater depths due to the unique coating that slows down the hydration process.

  • The AMC 1000 SC™ provides an innovative alternative to fluid sumps, offering solids control to optimise drilling fluid and drilling efficiency. The unit processes solids up to 260gpm / 1000Lpm, and incorporates high flow shakers suitable for HDD, mud rotary, diamond drilling and chip-core operations (up to 12 ¼” diameter for top hole drilling).

  • AMC BARITE™

    AMC BARITE™ is a high quality barium sulphate (BaSO4) micronized to meet API 13A specifications and is used to increase mud density in all types of drilling fluid systems, oil or water based.

  • AMC BENTONITE PLUG™

    AMC BENTONITE PLUG™ is designed for use as sealant for hole abandonment, casing seals or any vertical seal to prevent water movement up or down a borehole.
    AMC BENTONITE PLUG™ is available in medium (M) (¼” – 3⁄8’’) and coarse (C) (3⁄8” – ¾”) grades.

  • AMC BIOCIDE G™

    AMC BIOCIDE G™ is a low toxicity, broad spectrum biocide designed to reduce and prevent bacterial and fungal activity in water based fluids. AMC BIOCIDE G™ is a more environmentally acceptable alternative to glutaraldehyde and does not cause skin sensitisation and dermatitis that can occur through the handling of glutaraldehyde making it safer to handle.

  • AMC BORE SEAL™

    AMC BORE SEAL™ is a cellulose based product that is used to improve borehole stability by improving invasion control, seepage loss and other loss control situations.
    It is available in three grades – (F)ine, (M)edium and (C)oarse. AMC BORE SEAL™ F fibres will matrix within the wall cake to form an impermeable thin skin on the filter bed resulting in minimal fluid invasion into the formation. AMC BORE SEAL™ M & C can be used as loss circulation additives when partial return or seepage loss is encountered.

  • AMC DEFOAMER S™

    AMC DEFOAMER S™ is a silicone based all purpose defoamer and anti-foamer for use in water based drilling fluids. It is designed to reduce surface tension and break foam bubbles over a wide variety of conditions.
