WARP Advanced Fluids Technology

Overview Library

Low rheology fluids without barite sag

The WARP fluids technology ensures low rheology drilling fluids without barite sag by creating exceptionally stable fluid properties through micron-sized weighting materials 10 times smaller than drilling-grade barite. WARP fluids technology ensures that fluids have exceptionally stable properties, reducing the risk of barite sage by providing low-viscosity fluids with low plastic viscosities and yield point, and low-shear-rate viscosity.

Reduced drilling risks and well costs during critical applications

WARP fluids technology is the ultimate choice for reducing drilling risk and well costs for a wide array of critical drilling applications such as horizontal and extended-reach wells, coiled- and through-tubing rotary drilling, managed pressure drilling, reservoir drill-in fluids, wells with narrow operating windows, HPHT wells, casing drilling, inhibitive fluids, wells with a risk of barite sag, drilling waste management, and critical cementing operations.

Lower friction factors, non-damaging to formations

With WARP fluids technology, friction factors are lower, up to 10% in cased hole and 25% in open hole. The micron-sized weighting agents also pass more efficiently through shaker screens and openhole completion screens. WARP technology is non-damaging to producing formations and completion hardware and creates a lower dynamic and static fluid-loss with thinner filter cakes and lower breakthrough pressures.
