M-I SWACO offers a complete line of chemicals used to reduce fluid loss to the formation caused by the liquid phase of the drilling fluid. Our filtration reducers can be formulated to work effectively in bottomhole temperatures as high as 500 degF [260 degC].
These environmentally acceptable additives boost HSE profiles.
Effective in 100% diesel oil–base applications and in temperatures up to 350 degF [177 degC], this filtration reducer provides HPHT fluid loss control at low concentrations.
Applicable to all oil- and synthetic-base systems, this high-temperature filtration control agent easily disperses for efficient, effective filtration control.
In contrast with conventional anionic additives, this agent will not destroy low-end rheology.
This filtration reducer provides cuttings encapsulation, filtration control, and improved shale inhibition.
These premium-grade bentonites are used as a primary filtercake‐building, filtration‐control, and suspension agent in freshwater systems and can be used in all water‐base mud systems.
These additives attach and encapsulate drill solids, helping to control dispersion.
Used as a fluid-loss reducer in the NOVATEC synthetic drilling fluid system, this additive helps rapidly reduce HPHT filtration, even when used at relatively low concentration levels.
This polyanionic cellulose is a high‐quality, water‐soluble polymer designed to control fluid loss and increase viscosity in water‐base muds.
This starch reduces filtration to provide rheology stability in all makeup waters, including high-salinity and high-hardness brines.
This lignite is effective in high-temperature reservoirs.
Used for reducing fluid loss in freshwater and seawater muds, this additive has a high temperature rating and is not subject to bacterial degradation.
This synthetic polymer provides viscosifying and bridging functions for cost-effective fluid loss control.
Composed of naturally occurring material, this ground lignite is used to deflocculate water‐base muds and deliver thin, low‐permeability filtercakes.
Exclusively offered by M‐I SWACO, this HT agent controls fluid loss in a wide variety of drilling fluids with a minimal increase in viscosity.
These polyanionic cellulose products are designed to control fluid loss and promote shale stabilization in water‐base muds.
This agent generates less viscosity compared with regular-viscosity products.
An effective alternative to asphalt and gilsonite, this filtration reducer is effective in all oil- and synthetic-base drilling fluids.
This resin is used for HPHT filtration control, often to seal low‐pressure and depleted formations.
This additive is used to seal low-pressure and depleted formations and is compatible with all oil-base systems.
