Drilling Grade Barite

Drilling Grade Barite

Barites or barite is the moderately soft crystalline mineral form of barium sulphate (BaSO4). Approximately, 80% barites produced worldwide is used for oil and gas drilling as a weighing agent in the drill mud, primarily to prevent the explosive release of gas and oil during drilling and its unique physical and chemical properties like heaviness, high specific gravity, chemical and physical inertness, very low solubility and magnetic neutrality. It is a principal mineral of barium and is also used as a feedstock for producing various barium compounds, and is utilized as filler, extender and aggregate. Barites after converting to barium carbonate are used in the manufacture of ceramic and glass. The deposit in Kuddapah district of Andhra Pradesh is the single largest barites deposit in the world. India is one of the leading producer and exporter of barites in the world.
