M-I SWACO helps oil and gas operators increase efficiencies and lower costs by designing and engineering drilling fluid systems and associated additives that accommodate a wide range of drilling environments and demanding applications—HPHT, deepwater, shale gas, heavy oil, and depleted wells, and more.
Specialized additives complement the efficiencies of our advanced drilling fluid systems by targeting performance-hindering downhole problems that drive up costs and threaten drilling programs. M-I SWACO was the first company to introduce cost-effective, high-efficiency micronized barite technology to water- and oil-base drilling fluids.
Our base fluids and additives are tailored for specific well construction applications. Custom-formulation helps operators maintain wellbore stability, optimize ROP, and increase overall drilling efficiency while reducing NPT and minimizing HSE footprint.
Customized, engineered solutions for optimal drilling efficiency, lower operating costs, and minimal HSE impact—for a variety of drilling challenges.
