Invert-emulsion wetting agent
Reverse a water-wet solids problem and return the surface area of the solids to an oil-wet environment.
Formulated with low-toxicity mineral oil as the base, the VERSACLEAN mineral oil–based drilling fluid system boosts drilling performance in environments that prohibit the use of diesel oil as the base and reduces torque and drag, helping to optimize ROP and decrease drilling costs while maintaining excellent environmental performance.
The VERSACLEAN system remains stable in high temperatures and is chemically stable throughout drilling. It has excellent bridging capabilities and filtration control and a low coefficient of friction. The result is a fluid system that helps maximize production and stabilize wellbores. The VERSACLEAN system also provides exceptional performance while drilling in-gauge wellbores.
