M-I SWACO is the established leader in engineering customized and cost-effective spacers and displacement technologies. Our displacement spacers and additives are tailor-made for each application. This customized approach takes into consideration the drilling fluid being displaced and the function of the individual spacer in the system. We also look at the volume of spacer required to provide adequate contact time at the specified pump rate. We employ proprietary engineering software that embraces fluid-flow dynamics to further ensure accuracy.
The spacers and displacement offerings are engineered for today’s increasingly complex well completions. Our integrated tools and services are applied in unison to deliver new-concept displacements.
Complementing our spacers and displacement is a diverse offering that include
Our spacers and displacements also include numerous products within the SAFE family of nondamaging completion and reservoir drill-in fluid additives.
Combine powerful solvents, surfactants, and water-wetting agents for excellent surface cleaning.
In the transition from drilling fluid to brine, mechanical, chemical and hydraulic components each play a vital role in providing operators with trouble-free and cost-effective displacement.
Displace/remove oil- or synthetic-based mud and solids.
Remove water-base drilling fluid residue, solids, and oil film prior to completion.
Increase viscosity in invert emulstion and aqueous reservoir drill-in fluids.
