About Anchor

Anchor Drilling Fluids USA, LLC is the largest independent drilling fluids company in the United States and has provided customized drilling fluid solutions, specialty products and well-site services for over 40 years.

The company has grown from strategic acquisitions and mergers of several independent drilling fluids businesses and Norway's Transocean ASA Anchor U.S. operations. In 2005, Bob and Phil West acquired Anchor for the purpose of assembling the best management and operational team in the industry and providing both customers and employees an independent and superior alternative.


Business Focus:

Anchor Drilling Fluids has the capability of any major service company, but Anchor is run as a personalized independent without the major service company bureaucratic, pre-packaged, "fluids-system" culture.

Our goal is for Anchor to be the premier drilling fluids company in the United States by contributing to each operator's successful drilling operations through innovative products, personalized customer service and operational excellence in all drilling environments.

Anchor's over-arching guiding principles are to demonstrate integrity and respect for the well-being of customers, co-workers, communities served and the environment in which Anchor operates.


Key Services:

In order to deliver what the customer needs when they need it, Anchor owns the largest private transport fleet in the drilling fluids business; has 25 locations strategically positioned throughout the U.S.; and operates custom product blending, manufacturing and research facilities.
