Invert-emulsion wetting agent
Reverse a water-wet solids problem and return the surface area of the solids to an oil-wet environment.
Diesel oil-based drilling fluid system
The VERSADRIL diesel-base drilling fluid system from M-I SWACO resists contaminants, is solids tolerant, and has a low coefficient of friction to provide good lubricity. As a result, the system promotes wellbore stability, bolsters ROP, and improves drilling economics.
The VERSADRIL system remains stable in high temperatures and chemically stable throughout the drilling process. It reduces torque and drag and demonstrates excellent performance when drilling in-gauge wellbores. The end results include a stable wellbore that allows for maximized production, lower costs, and more attractive returns.
