Drilling Fluid Solutions

Customized, engineered solutions for optimal drilling efficiency, lower operating costs, and minimal HSE impact—for a variety of drilling challenges

M-I SWACO tailored drilling fluid solutions help operators address the industry’s most demanding applications. From HPHT environments in deep water to unconventional onshore drilling in environmentally sensitive basins, our customized suite of fluid products, additives, and software systems can help customers meet their objectives despite the complexity of technical challenges.

Fluid systems for a variety of conditions

Our drilling fluid solutions are designed with optimized thermal stability and enhanced gel structure for consistent performance in challenging applications, including extended-reach drilling (ERD), frigid arctic conditions, sensitive environments, and difficult unconventional drilling operations.

Innovative software solutions

M-I SWACO engineering software provides a suite of options that can help mitigate downhole complications before conditions lead to wellbore damage and HSE issues. Our software products can monitor real-time downhole conditions and display results in the industry’s first interactive 3D visualization of the inside of a wellbore.
