  • 1. REDEFINING SOLUTIONS
  • 2. THE RIGHT CHEMISTRYVENTURE CHEMICALS, INC. is a diverse group of like-minded profession-als venturing together to provide better solutions through better chemistry.Formed in 1977, Venture Chemicals explored the commercializing of somebasic cellulose and lignite derivatives processing technology, developing andpatenting the original core technology for the seepage-loss additives industry.Initial efforts were directed toward the oil and gas industry. Since that time,we have grown and expanded, selling to a wide variety of industries. VentureChemicals, Inc. is a highly diversified specialty chemical manufacturing com-pany serving many markets. But as diverse as our product lines are, all havea shared formula - our passion for new products, improved technology andbreakthrough solutions.
  • 3. NUTS, BOLTSAND BEAKERS.
  • 4. LAFAYETTE, LOUISIANA IS HOME. Serving a vari-ety of industries in markets around the world withinnovative products is at our core. Research anddevelopment is located at our primary laboratory fa-cilities in Lafayette. Approximately 200 patents havebeen issued to VCI and our subsidiaries through ourR&D programs. VCI maintains laboratory facilities inLafayette, Louisiana and Seagraves, Texas. Manufac-turing facilities are located in Seagraves. The com-pany has extensive chemical processing capabilities.As a responsible innovator, Venture Chemicals, Inc.is dedicated to meeting or exceeding the increasing-ly strict, multi-governmental environmental regula-tions. All of our locations operate under numerousenvironmental permits. Venture Chemicals, Inc. iscommitted to remaining a model environmental citizen.VCI was acquired by Enterra Corporation (NYSE)in 1981 as part of an oilfield expansion program. In1986, Venture Chemicals, Inc. was reacquired fromEnterra and remains a privately held corporationtoday. Our emphasis is in the oil and gas industry,while also maintaining a strong presence in theorganic fertilizer, feed additive, water cleaning andwax oxidation areas.Our present is firmly based on the strengths of ourpast. In the years ahead, we will assure our brightfuture through a relentless dedication to ourcustomers, employees and the next great idea.
  • 5. VENTURE FURTHER.
  • 6. IN ORDER TO SERVE OUR CUSTOMERS BETTER andremain far ahead of the industry curve, Venture Chemi-cals, Inc. operates two Laboratories and one Pilot Plantfacility.Our primary laboratory is located in Lafayette,Louisiana. This laboratory serves multiple purposes,including technical support services, quality assurancetesting, and research and development of innovativenew products and continual improvement of currentproducts. Three Chemists, a Chemical Engineer andhighly experienced Laboratory Technicians currentlystaff this laboratory. It’s equipped with drilling fluidtesting equipment, analytical tools, and specialtyreaction vessels.Our North Texas laboratory serves the primary functionof ensuring product quality through our Quality Man-agement System. It provides real-time quality controlfor all products we manufacture. Testing includes pH,particle size, moisture, density and solubility analysis,plus product specific performance testing.Our Pilot Plant facility, also located in Lafayette, ismanaged by a PhD with a strong background in prod-uct development, scale-up and troubleshooting. OurPilot Plant is equipped with a vast array of testingcapabilities. Maintaining this facility allows us to mini-mize the time from product development to full-scaleproduction.At Venture Chemicals, our research and developmentefforts are customer driven - pushing excellence andourselves further each and every day.
  • 7. AHEAD OF THE CURVECELLULOSE SEEPAGE AND LCM PRODUCTSVenture Chemicals, Inc. developed and introduced the “micronized, surface modifiedcellulose seepage loss additive” concept in the late 1970’s. In addition, we were is-sued seven key patents concerning this type of product manufacturing and process-ing. We also developed optimum application methods, lab and field-testing proce-dures, quality control procedures, formation damage testing, and alkaline removaltechniques for cellulose fibers. A number of SPE papers have been written concern-ing these developments. Read all about us.Today, there are at least 45 companies worldwide that are selling cellulose-basedseepage loss and lost circulation additives. Most of these companies sell genericproducts supplied by a few key manufacturers. It’s our opinion that only one othercompany, besides Venture Chemicals, Inc., of this group, has actually added any newtechnology to this area. Most have focused on simply selling generic products, andhave brought little to the technology table. For better than 34 years, Venture Chem-icals, Inc., has been a consistent innovator and an industry leader.ORGANO-HUMATESOver the past 30 years, Venture Chemicals has been one of the only companies ca-pable of manufacturing and supplying Organo-Humates (or Amine-Treated Lignites)on a world-wide basis. Being a consistent supplier to a majority of the leading mudcompanies on a world-wide basis, Venture has been a pioneer and a constant inno-vator in this highly specialized area of drilling fluid additives.APHRONSThe AphronICSTM drilling fluid technology was subsequently developed with a sistercompany as a combination of field and laboratory tests. The Aphron technology is anovel fluid system that uses micron sized gas bubbles to produce a variable densitydrilling fluid.For better than 34 years, Venture Chemicals, Inc., has been a consistent innovatorand an industry leader. Stay tuned for our next category changing technology.

  • 9. Product LinesVenture Chemicals groups it oilfield products into three areas:OIL-BASED FLUIDS:Organolinates, known as Ven Chems, and seepage loss fibers, Ven Fibers, form the basis ofthe Oil Fluids Line.Several additions to this line are under development with the release of organoclays andemulsifiers.WATER-BASED FLUIDS:Lignites and Fibers form the core of Water-Based Fluids.Surfactants, Lubricators and Viscosifiers complete this line, including the introduction ofMixed Metal Silicates that can be used in all forms of drilling.SPECIALTY:Venture provides a wide variety of specialty products used in bore-hole control includingSqueezes, Seals, Plugs, Sweeps and Pills. OIL BASED FLUIDS WATER BASED FLUIDS SPECIALTY CIRCULATION Organolignites Lignites Squeezes Ven-Chems Fibers Seals Fibers Delta ‘P’ Plugs Ven-Fyber Surfactants Pills Organoclays* Lubricators Sweeps Emulsifiers* Viscosifiers Ven-BHC Plus* *Under Development
  • 10. THE VEN-CHEMADVANTAGE.
  • 11. VENTURE CHEMICALS, produces a family of organo-humate derivativesbased on the reaction of humic acids (derived from oxidized lignite) withvarious high molecular weight organic compounds such as, but not limitedto, fatty amines. These reactions result in a conversion of normally water-soluble/-dispersible humates into organo-humates that are soluble/dispersiblein non-aqueous solvents such as oils. These organo-humates are black, freeflowing powders that produce colloidal dispersions in non-aqueous systems.OUR ORGANO-HUMATES are a useful specialty fluid loss additive for oilbase drilling fluids. Due to their colloidal nature and controlled solubility indiesel and mineral oils, they can be used to control the fluid loss propertiesof oil base fluids exceeding temperatures of 500°F. With special applica-tion techniques, they can be used considerably above 550°F.SOME OF THE USEFUL SECONDARY PROPERTIES of our organo-humatesare as emulsification enhancement, emulsion stabilizer and dispersant incertain types of oil-based drilling fluid systems.ORGANO-HUMATES can also be used in special slug treating situationsin water-based drilling fluids. They can be incorporated into an oil pilland added with a special slugging technique whereby the pill is pumpedaround the hole. This is particularly useful in cases of differential pressuresticking in pressure-depleted sands.ORGANO-HUMATES also have some potential utility as specialty fluidloss additives in oil base fracturing fluids.
