My family was a tribe of herdsmen in the Somalian desert. And as a child, the freedom I had to experience nature’s sights, sounds and smells was pure joy. We watched lions baking in the sun. We ran with giraffes, zebras and foxes. We chased hyraxes—rabbit-size animals—through the sand. I was so happy. Gradually, those happy times disappeared. Life became harder. By five I knew what it was to be an African woman, to live with terrible suffering in a passive, helpless manner. Women are the backbone of Africa; they do most of the work.

Hungry, thirsty and tired, I slowed and walked. As I pondered what was going to happen next, I heard, “Waris … Waris…” My father’s voice echoed all around me! I was frightened. If he caught me, I knew that he would make me, marry. Even though I had gotten a head start, Papa had tracked me down by following my footprints through the sand. He was close. I…

UAE and Russia are the growth frontiers for the oilfield drilling fluid additives manufacturers, providing a huge market to be tapped.

The additive technologies excel with emulsification and thinning/dispersion of oil-based muds. They help to create proper fluid weighting to balance pressure formation and optimize fluid flow. Other functions include maintaining strong boundary lubrication films in silicate-based mud systems specialized […]
