Background
An operator wanted to reduce emulsifier usage and costs without sacrificing fluid properties while drilling the intermediate sections of wells in the Woodford Formation. The section usually requires 20 days to drill with multiple emulsifiers and wetting agents.

Woodford Operator Reduces Emulsifier Costs by 50% Using Enhanced Multipurpose Emulsifier

MEGAMUL II emulsifier eliminates 3 days of drilling time

Using the MEGAMUL II emulsifier, the operator matched the rheological profile of previous wells drilled with a lower concentration of emulsifier added to the system.
Using the MEGAMUL II emulsifier, the operator matched the rheological profile of previous wells drilled with a lower concentration of emulsifier added to the system. The well was drilled 3 days faster than previous wells, helping reduce emulsifier costs by 50%. The emulsifier cost per barrel of fluid treated was reduced by 25%, and drum disposal was reduced by 45%.
