The company «Mumtaz Co», founded in 2014, is a young, dynamic company in the production of barite. The main consumers of « Mumtaz Co » are oil and gas companies. Processed barite used in drilling oil and gas wells as a weighting agent to control the hydrostatic pressure. Barite processing plant is the largest and most high-tech facilities in the CIS for production drilling grade barite. The product complies with international standards such as: API for processing barite,


n. [Drilling Fluids]

A dense mineral comprising barium sulfate [BaSO4]. Commonly used as a weighting agent for all types of drilling fluids, barites are mined in many areas worldwide and shipped as ore to grinding plants in strategic locations, where API specifies grinding to a particle size of 3 to74 microns. Pure barium sulfate has a specific gravity of 4.50 g/cm3, but drilling-grade barite is expected to have a specific gravity of at least 4.20 g/cm3 to meet API specifications. Contaminants in barite, such as cementsideritepyrrhotitegypsum and anhydrite, can cause problems in certain mud systems and should be evaluated in any assurance program for drilling-mud additives.
