The ARC formate based fluid systems are very different from
other fluid technologies. Features such as non-toxic, environmentally
benign, biodegradable, solids free, low viscosity, controlled
whole fluid, filtrate and solids invasion into your reservoir
are stand alone when it comes to salt based fluids. The synergistic
ARC aphron and micro-emulsion packages incorporate very unique
design benefits. The ability of these fluid technologies to
deliver you the best drilling, completion and workover fluid
options available today is a key differentiator from perceived
formate fluids are the #-1 drilling, workover and completions
ARC saturated formate
systems are very different from other conventional salt
based fluid technologies. Their design is non-toxic,
environmentally benign and biodegradable. The technology
offers inherently low viscosity across a wide density
range of 8.3 – 19.2 pound per gallon. These polar
ionic fluids are non-corrosive, non-damaging and very
safe to handle. Operating within a highly buffered pH
range of 9.0 -10.5 the ARC formate fluids provide additional
protection to polymers making them ideal base fluids
for wellsite applications. They are highly compatible
with other ARC offerings such as the Aphron and Micro-emulsion
fluid technologies. The ability of these fluid technologies
to deliver solids free invasion control is a key differentiator
from perceived competitive products.
Optimized Well Construction
technologies improve drilling, completion and workover
The synergies between
the ARC formate, aphron and micro-emulsion fluid technologies
deliver solids free, minimally invasive drilling, completion
and workover fluids like no others. Overcoming the operating
hurdles normally associated with high density fluid,
varying annular and reservoir pressure differentials,
under saturated reservoirs and environmental concerns
typically associated with perceived competitive fluids
is just a start. These minimally invasive fluids expand
the operating window of full density fluids serving
as a bridge between reservoirs and industry equipment
technologies. The net result being the drilling, completion
and workover conditions are optimized allowing for efficient
well construction operations, enhanced cleanup by speeding
up the rate of fluid recovery, increased initial production
rates and improved operating costs.
