As the primary research and development (R&D) and manufacturing center for our cesium formate brines, we are committed to providing excellent customer service while maintaining the highest safety, health and environmental (SH&E) standards.

Aberdeen site

We are the leading producer of cesium formate brines, a unique solids free, high density fluid used in drilling and completion, as well as fine cesium chemicals that are used in a variety of applications, including oil, gas and mining. Located in Aberdeen, the hub of the North Sea oil and gas industry, we are closer and more connected to industry professionals, allowing us to provide our customers with the highest level of service and expertise. 

Our site opened in 1998 and has since served as the administrative and technical center for our Specialty Fluids business. Approximately 27 employees perform a range of functions, including SH&E, R&D, human resources, operations and finance. 


Working in the laboratory

Helping local students

We believe that today’s students are our future talent. Every year we cooperate with The University of Aberdeen  and Robert Gordon University to advance the experience of local students. For the past six years, we have invited Master of Science students to work side-by-side with scientists in our laboratories, and this year we have initiated a new project that will enroll several new masters and honor students. 

Donation to the local hospital

Supporting a local hospital

In 2015, we donated over £1,000 to the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary to support their efforts to raise funds for a new satellite renal dialysis unit. We held weekly lunches and employees took turns donating homemade treats.

In 2016, four of our employees took part in the Aberdeen Baker Hughes 10K in support of Friends of Anchor, an organization supporting haematology, oncology and radiotherapy for people suffering from all forms of cancer, leukemia and benign blood disorders.
