Baroid IDP was one of the first drilling fluid companies to apply its vast knowledge of drilling fluids to the industrial Horizontal Directional Drilling market.  Early on, it was obvious that conventional horizontal drilling wisdom from the oilfield was not applicable in the utility and river crossing business.

The unique physical and geologic environment of many utility bores, and all river crossings, require gel strengths and filtration control be optimized to achieve a successful horizontal bore.  Mother Nature, as always, dictates utility borings and river crossings require the optimization of different drilling fluid properties due to unconsolidated sands, reactive clays, gravels and cobbles that are commonly encountered in the horizontal environment.  Therefore, a primary focus in developing a drilling fluid for HDD is in the suspension of drill cuttings, combined with reduced viscosity, to ultimately allow for better maintenance of flow and effective removal of solids.  Baroid IDP maintains products specifically designed to meet the unique challenges of the HDD environment.
