Drilling Fluid Products
EMEC supplies all products required for formulating water-based and non-aqueous fluids to address the various well bore conditions encountered in drilling. Our quality assurance procedures ensure all products meet industry-specific and EMEC specifications where applicable. Our products range includes all materials required to drill from spud to completion and in between.
For more information concerning EMEC drilling fluids products;Product Data Sheet (PDS) and Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) are available below while our competent technical personnel are also available to advise on your specific challenges.
EMEC’s range of weighting products for increasing fluid density includes barite and other higher density weighting materials (e.g. iron oxide). We also supply micronized barite when beneficial fluid properties are required for certain drilling situations, and finely-ground calcium carbonate for use in reservoir zones.
EMEC’s range of lubricants and surfactants are designed to reduce torque and drag, especially when drilling deviated or extended-reach wells. They are environmentally acceptable, are suitable for use in HPHT wells, and help to reduce bit balling and differential sticking. Inert spherical polymer beads are also available for improving lubricity and reducing casing wear.
EMEC’s range of LCM products for plugging and sealing pores and fractures include an assortment of fibers, granules and flakes that are used as a bridging and plugging material for curing natural or induced losses in weak zones and fractured formations. More sophisticated solutions for dealing with severe lost circulation problems include cross-linking polymers, which set to form a solid but flexible structure in fractured formations.
Our range of products enable us to formulate oil-based drilling fluid systems using a variety of low toxicity mineral oils, synthetic oils and esters. These fluids are designed for environmental acceptability by addressing pollution and toxicity concerns, and produce exceptional performance and wellbore stability when drilling water-sensitive formations.
Our range of drill-in fluid products are designed to optimize well productivity by minimizing formation damage. This is achieved by effective bridging of the pore throats with a non-damaging impermeable filter cake that lifts off easily when the well is flowed. This minimizes fluid and solids invasion into the reservoir formation, which reduces the risk of precipitation or emulsions with pore fluids, with less chance of hydrating or dislodging clays that may be lining the pores.
EMEC’s range of formate brines provide densities up to 19.2 ppg (2.3 sg). The sodium, potassium and cesium formate brine range has provided superior well control and has minimized formation damage when used as a low-solids drill-in fluid, and has protected wellbore tubulars and down hole assemblies from corrosion when used as a completion and workover fluid.
Our range of specialty products are designed to improve drilling performance with additives that improve fluid loss control, minimize bit balling, improve hole cleaning, prevent differential sticking, stabilize and strengthen the well bore, and reduce torque, drag and casing wear in deviated and extended reach wells.
