Water-based reservoir drill-in fluid

Water fluids

Increase ROP while minimizing formation damage

The FLOPRO NT water-based reservoir drill-in fluid is engineered to meet the distinctive needs of reservoir engineers while addressing the performance requirements of drilling operations personnel.

For the reservoir engineer, the FLOPRO NT fluid characteristics make it minimally damaging to the formation with minimal drawdown pressure. For drilling, it exhibits an extremely low friction factor, generating low pump pressures and high ROP. FLOPRO NT fluid also possesses an extremely high capacity for cuttings transport. From an HSE perspective, it can be formulated in a water-based fluid environment, effectively meeting global environmental compliance.

The FLOPRO NT fluid provides excellent benefits as a high-performance, nondamaging system that optimizes production rates across a wide range of completion methods, including

  • openhole gravel-pack or nongravel-pack completions
  • barefoot, slotted, or perforated liner completions
  • cased hole completions where hole cleaning or minimizing fluid invasion is critical
  • high-temperature applications using FORMIX formate-based brine technology.
During drill-in operations, the FLOPRO NT fluid reduces drilling costs
