Bri-Chem Expands Into Liquid Drilling Mud Blending And Storage In US

Bri-Chem Corp., a leading North American wholesale distributor and manufacturer of oil and gas drilling fluids and steel pipe, has announced it has further expanded its operations in the U.S. drilling fluids market by installing its first synthetic liquid mud blending plant and storage tank facility at the Leetsdale, Pennsylvania warehouse.

Bri-Chem's growing U.S. customer base requires a synthetic based drilling fluid which is critical and interrelated part of the drilling operations in this region. The majority of the oil companies are now adapting to using a central liquid mud facility, where the storage, handling and mixing are performed. Bri-Chem's new liquid mud facility will distribute synthetic liquid drilling mud via road tanker to the various rig sites.

"Our USA expansion plan to create a wide-ranging wholesale drilling fluid distribution network to service the USA unconventional resource plays is right on track." commented Don Caron, chief executive officer of Bri-Chem, "We now have eleven USA warehouses and our first strategic liquid mud facility available to service the growing independent drilling fluid companies in the USA."

Since our formation in 1985, Bri-Chem has established two primary segments of business through a combination of internal growth and acquisitions: Bri-Chem's Drilling Fluid Division is North America's largest independent wholesale supplier of drilling fluids for the oil and gas industry. It provides over 100 critical drilling fluid products, cementing, acidizing and stimulation additives from 27 strategically located warehouses throughout Canada and the United States; Bri-Chem's Steel Pipe Division is the first company to introduce and construct a Thermal Pipe Expansion (TPE) facility in North America for manufacturing, testing and supply of large diameter seamless steel pipe for the energy industry.
