We provide tailored drilling fluid services throughout the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. Our experience drilling technical horizontal wells has resulted in optimized operations and lower drilling costs through effective technology and process optimization while ensuring safety is a top priority.

With our knowledgeable field service representatives, engaged operations team, technical drilling fluid programming team, and Research & Innovation Center Laboratory with PhD chemists dedicated to innovation, our team is here to support and ensure the success of each drilling program.

Our Process

Every well poses unique challenges - we’re prepared to provide effective solutions. Our dedicated drilling fluid programming team uses a methodical approach to creating tailored drilling fluid programs. The process starts with interpreting offset studies to identify potential drilling issues and suggest mitigation strategies. This information ultimately guides the drilling fluid design in the program. We offer industry leading proprietary products and systems, including water-based, oil-based, brine fluids, SAGD and heavy oil systems as well as specialty systems such as potassium formate and silicates. With strategic stockpoints and oil-based mud blending facilities throughout Western Canada, we’re ideally situated to support your drilling program.

Working as a partner with your drilling team, we provide well hydraulic simulations, drilling fluid technology seminars, detailed well recaps, key performance indicator tracking, daily drilling fluid checks (or more as needed) from our experienced drilling fluid field representatives and technical support from our operations, technical and senior management teams.

  • Oil-Based Mud Blending Facilities

    As one of the largest suppliers of oil-based mud in Western Canada, SECURE’s Drilling and Production Services division has been guaranteed a large volume supply of base oil from suppliers. SECURE purchases over 100,000 m3 of base oil on an annual basis in Canada, which in turn is supplied out of our three Canadian facilities.  With this accessibility to large amounts of base oil and with the overall fluid management process, SECURE has become a major resource for operators to satisfy their base oil needs. Our three Oil-Based Mud Blending Facilities are located in strategic locations in the centre of oil and gas development: Grande Prairie, Drayton Valley, and Fox Creek, Alberta.

    All of these facilities are capable of building and reconditioning invert fluid. Each facility has an oil based mud testing laboratory that is used for Quality Assurance and Quality Control testing, including flash point testing.

    The AER recently released Bulletin 2013-02 that governs used invert. This bulletin refers to used invert as an oilfield waste and must be sent to a facility that is regulated with a Waste Management license. Two of SECUREs’ facilities are compliant with this bulletin, Drayton Valley and Fox Creek. The Drayton Valley facility is currently under the SECURE Drayton Valley FST license and the Fox Creek facility has a Waste Management license.
