Drilling fluid research center AKROS is located in Moscow. It is equipped with state-of-art testing facilities to research and design new solutions for drilling fluids.

The Center performs tests for the incoming quality control, conducting extensive research related to issues and problems arising during drilling operations in the fields. We work in close cooperation with the Chemical Diversity Research Institute to find solutions for chemical engineering and to design new additives with improved properties.

Now the Center works in cooperation with several Russian and global producers of chemicals. The Center is involved in research and development of new shale inhibitors, rheology modification agents, fluid loss reducers and other products. Our priority is to develop our partnership with the local vendors and to support pilot chemicals manufacturing projects.
