Risks can lead to higher costs, environmental and safety issues, and non-productive time.
As temperatures and pressures continue to increase, engineered solutions are critical to successful drilling.
Increased wellbore stability, significant reductions in whole fluid losses, and excellent return permeability
THERMA-DRIL™ Fluid Performance
Maximum wellbore stability, enhanced drilling efficiencies and improved hole cleaning in HP/HT environments
UNCONTROLLED HEAT LOSS WITH BRINE
CONTROLLED HEAT LOSS WITH N-SOLATE FLUID
Higher production potential, can lower costs over traditional methods, and helps maintain wellbore stability
STEELSEAL Resiliency Comparison
Helps reduce costs through superior fracture-sealing performance, effective solutions in HP/HT environments
Improved HSE, helps reduce drilling time, and optimized hole cleaning and ROP
