Drilling Fluids Systems
M-I SWACO built its reputation on engineering drilling fluid systems and additives that improve efficiencies, reduce costs and minimize HSE impact. We customize drilling fluid systems and associated additives to reduce NPT in the most demanding applications, including HTHP, deepwater and depleted wells. M-I SWACO is widely recognized for developing solutions for downhole problems, from the simple to the complex. We were the first, for instance, to introduce cost-effective and high efficiency micronized barite technology to water and oil-based drilling fluids.
A leader in R&D, we develop drilling fluid systems for specific applications, such as deepwater, shale gas and heavy oil extraction. Complementing our drilling fluid systems are specialized additives that optimize efficiencies by targeting performance-impacting downhole problems that increase costs.
The formulation of the base fluid and additives is tailored for the specific well construction application with the primary objectives of:
- Maintaining wellbore stability
- Optimizing ROP and overall drilling efficiency
- Reducing NPT
- Maximizing production
- Cutting costs
- Minimizing HSE footprint

Fluid Loss Control Systems
Additives for controlling fluid loss during and after completion
An extensive portfolio is available of additives that control production-limiting fluid losses during and after completions. Our fluid loss control technologies reduce the high costs and the risks of formation damage often resulting from remedial treatments.
Our line of fluid loss control systems include the uniquely engineered seal-n-peel system, designed as a contingency for high-rate gravel or water-pack completions. It deposits an impenetrable filtercake against the inside surface of the screen assembly. When the well is ready to go on stream, the cake simply peels away using production pressure and flow as the lift-off mechanism.
Control the loss of clear brine fluid with a chemically modified, crosslinked cellulose polymer.
Get superb supplemental fluid loss control when mechanical devices fail or are unavailable.
Increase the viscosity and carrying capacity of workover and completion fluids.
Innovative Cementing Solutions - Cement supports and protects well casings and helps achieve zonal isolation. Critical to safer, environmentally sound, and profitable wells, zonal isolation is created and maintained in the wellbore by the cementing process. Whatever your drilling environment or however remote the location, our innovative cementing technologies offer you a range of cementing solutions to achieve zonal isolation for the life of your well.
Deepwater Cementing - Understanding deepwater technical challenges is key to designing cementing solutions that meet deepwater specifications and provide required zonal isolation.
