QMAX HYDRO: Water-Based Drilling Fluids
Water-based fluids are often used due to their relatively low cost, the ease of acquiring the base fluid (water), and their low impact on the environment. QMax offers a wide variety of water-based fluids, which are classified based on the presence of a clay inhibitor, and the use of polymers for its formulation. Fluids selection depends on the composition of the water phase (pH, iconic content, etc.), viscosity builders (clay or polymers), and rheological control agents (deoflocculants or dispersants).
QMAXDRILL, our high-performance, highly-inhibitive, water-based drilling fluid system, can be used in the most challenging and environmentally sensitive drilling applications, both onshore and offshore.
PERFORMANCE is our inhibitive sodium and/or potassium formate-based fluid system family, created in response to the industry need for an HPHT drill-in and completion fluid, which was free from barite, oil, and halides.
DRILSMOOTH is a mixed metal oxide (MMO) rheology modifier and secondary shale stabilizer, designed to provide excellent shear-thinning, carrying capacity, and suspending ability.
