ARC Formate Fluid Technology:
Delivering Tomorrow’s Fluid Technologies Today

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 competitive products.


Introduction To Formate Fluid Technology ARC formate fluids are the #-1 drilling, workover and completions fluid
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 ARC technologies improve drilling, completion and workover processes
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.
