M-I SWACO provides a complete line of solids control technologies engineered to optimize drilling efficiencies by maintaining fluid integrity, reducing fluid losses, minimizing HSE impact, and lowering drilling costs through NPT management. Our offering includes advanced shale shakers and associated OEM composite screens, new-generation centrifuges and pumps, cuttings dryers, and the RHE-USE fluid processing system that enables reuse of invert emulsion drilling fluids over multiple wells.
We work closely with rig designers, contractors, operators, and shipyards to customize integrated drilling and waste management configurations for optimal fluid recovery, reduced dilution rates, less waste generation, and lower costs.
New generation cuttings management technologies reduce the HSE footprint of drilling operations. They include fully-enclosed pneumatic technologies for the containment, handling, temporary storage, and transport of drill cuttings. Thermal and frictional desorption minimize the fluid content of cuttings, significantly reducing total waste volumes and the need for costly transportation. M-I SWACO also has significant expertise in the planning, execution, and monitoring of in-situ injection of drilling waste. Operators save time, labor, rig space, and mitigate HSE risk by avoiding transportation over water or on roadways.
Shale shaker technology for consistent solids control performance on land or offshore.
Reducing costs, waste volumes with exclusive shaker screen line.
High-efficiency solids removal, fluid preservation for the entire circulating volume.
Decanting units for enhanced environmental performance.
High-speed centrifuge for maximum in liquid/solid separation
Comprehensive, single-source cuttings reinjection (CRI) solutions—on time, under budget, and within environmental constraints.
Mobile, high-efficiency solids control for land operations.
The RHE-USE process is a patent-pending technology that allows operators to reuse invert emulsion drilling fluids over multiple wells without relying on reclamation through high rates of dilution. The process treats oil-base drilling fluid, reducing solids below 1% while drilling.
Pulsating technology joins ultra-efficient screens for the utmost in cuttings treatment, fluid recovery
Vacuum and advanced pneumatic conveyance technologies for the safe collection and transport of drilling cuttings.
Suite of high-technologies for securely treating contaminated drill cuttings
