Product Overview

Gilsonite as Drilling Fluids Additive

At PEAK UNIVERSAL BUSINESS™, we understand the complexities and challenges of drilling operations.

That's why we offer a high-quality solution - Gilsonite for Drilling Fluids. Our Gilsonite is a naturally occurring, versatile mineral that enhances the performance of drilling fluids, improving your operational efficiency and bottom-line results.

Gilsonite, also known as natural asphalt or uintaite, is a unique mineral rich in complex hydrocarbons.

It is an essential component in drilling fluids, providing a range of benefits from temperature stability to wellbore strengthening.

At PEAK UNIVERSAL BUSINESS™, we source our Gilsonite responsibly, ensuring it meets the highest quality standards for your drilling needs.

Wellbore Stability

Gilsonite helps to stabilize the wellbore, reducing the risk of collapse and ensuring smoother drilling operations.

Temperature Stability

It provides excellent temperature stability, maintaining its properties even under extreme heat conditions.

Loss Circulation Material

Gilsonite acts as a loss circulation material, helping to prevent fluid loss during drilling operations.

Shale Inhibition

It inhibits shale swelling and disintegration, reducing the risk of wellbore instability.


Our Gilsonite for Drilling Fluids is suitable for a wide range of applications, including:

Oil-based drilling fluids

Oil-based drilling fluids are formulated using oil as the continuous phase, with water as the dispersed phase. These fluids are known for their excellent lubrication properties, high-temperature stability, and ability to minimize shale swelling. Gilsonite, when added to oil-based drilling fluids, enhances their performance by improving wellbore stability, reducing fluid loss, and providing additional shale inhibition.

Water-based drilling fluids

Water-based drilling fluids use water as the continuous phase, with oil as the dispersed phase. These fluids are more environmentally friendly and cost-effective compared to oil-based fluids. However, they can be less effective in stabilizing reactive shales. The addition of Gilsonite to water-based drilling fluids helps to improve wellbore stability, reduce fluid loss, and inhibit shale swelling, enhancing the overall performance of the fluid.

Synthetic-based drilling fluids

Synthetic-based drilling fluids are formulated using synthetic oils as the continuous phase. These fluids combine the benefits of both oil-based and water-based fluids, offering excellent lubrication and temperature stability while being more environmentally friendly. Gilsonite, when added to synthetic-based drilling fluids, further improves wellbore stability, reduces fluid loss, and provides shale inhibition, ensuring optimal drilling performance.
