Oil & Gas

Guar gum use in the Oil & Gas industry has remarkably grown in the past few years. Particularly, fast-hydrating guar gum is nowadays extensively used in oil drilling and hydraulic fracking operations, for its excellent viscosity property. When the viscous drilling mud is pumped under pressure to create and expand cracks in rocks, guar gum prevents loss of water. It’s also cheaper than any other thickener, it’s a natural product and it’s naturally reabsorbed or exhausted, resulting environmental-friendly.
