Significance of Diesel Slurry Guar Gum Powder in Oil Field Industry

Guar, also known as Diesel Slurry Guar, is being cultivated for its seed, vegetable, green fodder, and green manuring. This plant grows about 4 feet high annually with vertically stacked, large leaves and bunch of pods. These pods are utilized as green vegetable or for cattle feed in addition to industrial usages.

Properties that Make Guar Gum Significant for Oil Field Industry

  • Diesel slurry guar gum power is highly soluble in cold water.
  • It has powerful hydrogen bonding potential.
  • It has great thickening, stabilizing, emulsion, and film creating potential.

Multiple Uses of Guar Gum
  • Natural thickener
  • Emulsifier
  • Natural Fiber
  • Bonding agent
  • Stabilizer
  • Gelling agent
  • Fracturing agent

Use of Guar Gum in Oil Field Industry

Industrial quality Guar gum powder is applied in oil well fracturing, stimulation, mud drilling and other industrial applications due to its properties that make it highly stable with great thickening properties and a suspending agent.

In this industry, guar gum is applied as a synthetic polymer and a surfactant ideally befitting for every type of rheological requirements of water-based or even brine-driven drilling fluids.

The high viscosity guar gum ingredients are facilitated as drilling aids in oil well drilling, water drilling and geological drilling.

The most prominent cause of guar gum products being used in oil drilling fields is its potential to reduce friction in the holes, and reduce the power consumption.

Guar gum power is widely used in multiple industries and has been accepted as the promising component that have potential to be used in various other industries in the days to come.
