From Drilling through Production, We Are Focused on Our Customers

M-I SWACO equip our customers with the systems and technologies that enable them to meet their needs at every stage of the drilling process through ensuring efficient and profitable production. We provide drilling fluid systems engineered to improve drilling performance by anticipating fluids-related problems, fluid systems and specialty tools designed to optimize wellbore productivity, production technology solutions to maximize production rates, and environmental solutions that safely manage waste volumes generated in both drilling and production operations.

Sustained production

In order to sustain and increase world oil and gas production, higher levels of drilling will be necessary in increasingly challenging and complex environments, resulting in wells with longer and more complex profiles. Understanding the technical challenges and mitigating the consequent risk in advance of a drilling and production programs can mean major cost savings and well performance improvement for our customers. M-I SWACO plays a critical part in meeting these challenges.

The way forward

In August 2010, M-I SWACO became part of Schlumberger through its merger with Smith International. The primary driver behind this merger is drilling optimization: in order to sustain and increase world oil and gas production, higher levels of drilling will be necessary in increasingly challenging and complex environments. This means wells with longer and more complex profiles. Understanding the technical challenges and mitigating the consequent risk in advance of a drilling program can mean major cost savings and well performance improvement for our customers. M-I SWACO will play a critical part in meeting these challenges.

From its earliest roots, M-I SWACO recognized that it best served its clients, not by delivering drilling fluid products to the client’s location, but by anticipating and planning for how those products would behave in the downhole environment, both to optimize drilling performance and to minimize the risk associated with fluids-related problems.

Project expertise

Whether providing drilling fluid systems and products, completions systems, solids control capabilities, pressure control, waste management, production technologies or horizontal and directional drilling for mining or water wells, M-I SWACO is there to provide the products, services and expertise you need for your project.

MONGOOSE PRO Outshines Predecessor Shaker in Direct Field Comparison
