The SECURE Fox Creek oil-based mud blending and storage facility offers customized blending of oil-based muds and includes capacity to provide bulk fluid storage. Our facility is WM approved, making it capable of storing used products with a flashpoint greater than 34° Celsius.

This facility utilizes the custom blending of InverMAX , SECURE’s proprietary invert. The facility is able to obtain ideal blending results using a Vortex Hopper and 6” x 5” x 14” Mission Magnum shear pump. Aside from the hopper and the pump, the facility is equipped with Vortex Radial Eductors in the mix tank and storage tanks to ensure the fluid is sheared at all levels of production.

The on site mud lab allows SECURE to provide QA/QC immediately after mixing and prior to loading to ensure only the best quality drilling fluid is sent to our customers. The yard at Fox Creek is large enough to provide ample room for additional rental tanks (Target Tanks) when our permanent storage is full. With Directive 55 in effect, SECURE obtained WM approval for this site which allows used oil-based muds to be stored and recycled at the facility.
