ECOFORM - FORMATE BRINES HIGH PERFORMANCE FLUIDS FOR DRILLING AND COMPLETION

EcoForm, a separate business unit of M-I SWACO, is the leading global supplier of potassium and sodium formates to the petroleum industry. Formate brines were specifically designed and developed for use in challenging well operations. The EcoForm product range consists of high purity, solids-free brines with a seamless density up to 13.1ppg (1.57 SG). It also includes patented free-flowing powders or granules. Formate brines retain their liquid state to -50C and their full range of beneficial properties at working temperatures up to 400F. These unique fluids allow the creation of combined drilling and completion fluids which add value and reduce risk.

FORMATE BRINES

Challenging well constructions can be risky and expensive endeavors, but EcoForm formate brines offer operators the means to significantly reduce their level of risk exposure and liability. The number of well-known problems associated with solid-laden fluids such as barite sag, high ECDs, differential sticking and formation damage are eliminated or minimized. Experience has shown that most wells drilled with formate brines have significantly higher production rates than expected.

The petroleum industry recognizes this fact, and consumer demand for formate brines for drilling and completion has been growing steadily at 40%/year. Formate brines have been in regular field use as drilling, completion, work over, spacer and fracturing fluids since 1993. Their field case histories include more than 200 shale drilling jobs and hundreds of reservoir drilling-in operations in 16 countries around the world.
