The Aminimax system is a specially designed, amine water-based drilling fluid that provides comparable inhibitive qualities of a salt-based system. It is more environmentally friendly, non-corrosive and cost-effective than traditional salt systems. Aminimax is compatible with numerous drilling fluid additives and can be catered to meet your needs. For instance, if more inhibition is required, it can be used in conjunction with a PHPA to provide two mechanisms of inhibition. The Aminimax system is also used where formation damage is a concern. It is a highly inhibitive drill-in fluid that provides added lubricity, excellent carrying capacity, and will maintain the integrity of the reservoir.
Longreach is a polymer system that is blended to enhance extended reach drilling through lubricity and fluid performance. Limiting the number of products required to maintain the system’s properties provides an efficient, cost-effective system. It is easily dispersible, highly lubricious and provides enhanced ROP.
The Low Damage Polymer system incorporates select products to offer a reduced, near-wellbore impact on production zones. The Low Damage Polymer system is crucial when doing barefoot completions or minimizing drilling fluid impact work for easy cleanup. The system can be customized to fit your needs.
Silicate is a water-based drilling fluid additive that inhibits the shale in formations and results in a stabilized wellbore. Silicate systems are suitable for drilling highly reactive clay, dispersible chalk formations and fractured zones. Silicates protect the shale by in-situ precipitation and gelling. This occurs when the silicate comes in contact with neutral pore fluid in zones and/or polyvalent cations such as calcium or magnesium in the formation. Silicate floc water is ideal for drilling top-hole sections and reactive zones to minimize losses and mud rings. This reduced solids system is ideal for reuse as well as make up fluid. For high-density applications, the system reduces the chance of losses in well control situations. The silicate-weighted system has been used up to 2000+ kg/m3.
