Operators have a growing taste for water-based drilling fluids to meet sustainability requirements. But what about competitive performance and well economics?

Mr Bit
Is the sommelier in?

Hostess
24/7.

Sommelier
Good afternoon Mister Bit, it’s been too long.

Mr Bit
I’d like a tasting.

Sommelier
I know of your past fondness for the oil-based varietals, but …I can whole-heartedly endorse the new breed of Aqueous fluids. The Veratherm high-temperature water-based drilling fluid—enhanced rheological profile and fluid loss control with low sag tendency. And I know you’ll appreciate its long-term thermal stability ideal for high-temperature wells. What’s next?

Mr Bit
I need something robust—precise

Sommelier
Robust … precise… Ah, the Hydraglyde high-performance water-based drilling fluid system. Reduced torque, drag, shale swelling, and dispersion in environmentally sensitive shale. Incorporates HydraCap additive and HydraHib inhibitor, and, of course, the HydraSpeed ROP-enhancing lubricant.

Mr. Bit
Could you recommend anything for higher brine-oil ratios? Something big—bold for high DLS yet flexible.

Sommelier
May I suggest the KLA-SHIELD system. Enhanced-polymer water-based drilling fluid incorporating a broad range of polyamines—should environmental guidelines get strict and hole conditions—dynamic. An M-I SWACO classic.

Sommelier
Shall I have everything delivered to the rig?

Mr. Bit
Yes. Thank you.

Sommelier
Excellent.

Mr Bit…
Do enjoy your work.
