GILSONITE ADDS PERFORMANCE
American Gilsonite Company is the world’s only supplier of Gilsonite®, a naturally occurring hydrocarbon resin (uintaite). With a number of unique chemical properties and physical characteristics, Gilsonite improves the performance of many critical materials and applications.
The strength, flexibility, extreme light weight and environmental safety of Gilsonite make it a superior additive for cementing and drilling fluids in the oilfield, as well as improving performance and quality in asphalt, inks, paints, stains, construction materials and foundry castings.
Gilsonite is only found in our mines in Northeastern Utah. If it doesn’t come from American Gilsonite Company, it isn’t Gilsonite.
“Based on the impressive, consistent results of these field trials, we have replaced all alternative OBM fluid loss additives with American Gilsonite® throughout our Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma operations.”– Representative from a large U.S. independent drilling fluids company
“Gilsonite® controls free water, lowers the slurry water ratio, prevents lost circulation, increases yield and mixes faster without foaming. I’m sold on Gilsonite® G-Bond as a cheaper option to glass beads.”– Kevin Swikert, WTC Engineer and Technology Manager, West Texas Cementers
“Our testing highlighted that the superior performing fluid contained American Gilsonite® uintaite versus a lower tier product employed in the competing mud system.”– Company spokesperson for a large, international E&P oil company with a significant presence in the US unconventional market
