  • AMC MUD AID™

    Introducing the AMC MUD AID™ (Automated In-field Diagnosis) The only in-field, remotely monitored drilling fluid testing unit.

  • 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.

  • 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 PAC L™

    AMC PAC L™ is a premium grade low-molecular weight polyanionic cellulose polymer, which is an extremely effective filtrate reducer in fresh or salty water.

  • AMC PAC LV™

    AMC PAC LV™ is a low-molecular weight polyanionic cellulose polymer, which is an extremely effective filtrate reducer in fresh or salty water and meets or exceeds API specifications for low viscosity PAC.

  • AMC PAC R™

    AMC PAC R™ is a high molecular weight polyanionic cellulose polymer that is an extremely effective viscosifier with minor filtration control properties in fresh, hard and saline waters.

  • AMC RESI DRILL™

    AMC RESI DRILL™ is a product designed to give any drilling fluid non invasive properties. It reduces dynamic filtration loss, stabilises wellbores and protects reservoirs from damage. The product is formulated to reduce fluid loss and stabilise shale by preventing filtrate invasion into permeable structures. Filter cake and differential sticking are therefore minimised and weak formations are stabilised. The product also has a high degree of environmental acceptability.

  • AMC SHALEHIB ULTRA™

    AMC SHALEHIB ULTRA™ is an amine based product that provides superior shale and clay inhibition in polymer based drilling fluids. Effective in formations containing shale and reactive clay AMC SHALEHIB ULTRA™ reduces the potential for bit balling, torque and drag as well as other clay and shale related issues. All this is delivered by a product that has a minimal chloride content, making it far more environmentally acceptable than potassium chloride, which is typically used for inhibition.

  • AMC XAN BORE™

    AMC XAN BORE™ is a premium quality biopolymer powder designed to provide maximum solids suspension and hole cleaning in vertical and highly deviated wells as well as horizontal directional drilling applications. AMC XAN BORE™ is a distinctive product, able to produce a thixotropic shear thinning fluid. AMC XAN BORE™ also acts as a very effective mud filtrate viscosifier.

  • 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.
