Reduce the adverse effects of water and drill solids contamination while using an emulsifier that is effective over a wide temperature range and in the presence of contaminants such as water, solids, and cement.
The MEGADRIL oil-based temperature-stable invert-emulsion drilling fluid system delivers robust, temperature-stable invert emulsion fluid without the associated elevated gel strengths. Through its unique combination of chemistries, the MEGADRIL system produces an improved relationship among the 6-rpm reading, gel strength, and yield point.
The MEGADRIL system controls filtration without increasing overall viscosity. It has a higher tolerance for drill solids that can cause progressive gel strengths, enabling reduced pump pressures and increased hole cleaning capabilities while retaining manageable equivalent circulating density (ECD) values.
The MEGADRIL system’s relationship among the yield point, 6-rpm dial reading, and the gel structure enables superior cuttings transport, dramatically improving hole cleaning. The system’s constant rheological relationship ensures efficient cuttings transport and fewer packoffs.
Fluid and cuttings separator recovers 51.3 bbl of oil-base mud, saves USD 6,000, and reduces drilling waste by 16,547 lbm.
Solids control system reduces fluid retention on drilling cuttings and increases fluid recovery on shakers during onshore operation in Argentina.
