M-I SWACO has refined the industry’s most advanced line of minimally damaging and health, safety, and environment (HSE)-acceptable reservoir drill-in fluids (RDFs) and associated additives. Our RDF leadership was cemented with the award-winning PRO Series and has expanded to comprise some the industry’s most innovative technologies. Advancements include the only RDF that drills with oil-base efficiency, but with the completion simplicity of a water-base drilling fluid. Another breakthrough technology uses divalent brines as its base fluid and builds viscosity without the use of biopolymers.
We engineer minimally damaging RDF systems specifically to drill and complete the reservoir section in open hole. Our water and invert emulsion RDF formulations are tailored to specific completion techniques, emphasizing compatibility and minimal formation damage.
Complementing our RDF systems are equally safe and effective additives that help get the most out of your well.
Use in divalent brines to optimize production.
Meet the distinctive needs of reservoir engineers while addressing the performance requirements of drilling operations personnel.
Get high ROPs, minimal drawdown pressure, excellent cuttings transport, easy cleanup, and global environmental compliance.
Enhance flowback to eliminate the need for a chemical cleanup treatment.
Maxmize production with a synthetic olefin–based drilling fluid system.
Use a paraffin-base reservoir drill-in fluid that is well suited for use in high-angle wells where optimum hole cleaning is critical.
Use this oil-base high-temperature fluid for in-gauge wellbores.
Employ chemicals such as CaCl2, CaBr2, NaBr, KCOOH, and CeCOOH as the internal phase for density.
