Case Histories

Major West Texas Operator (Sandstone Formation)

Application: A major operator in Poker Lake Field, New Mexico had reached technical limits in the drilling of their horizontal and multilateral wells.

Product/Solution: EGS DFL-Aqueous

Results: The ROP had increased to over 100 fph resulting in an increase of over 500%. EGS DFL-A also promoted well-bore stability which resulted in an overall efficiency improvement of over 30%.




Major Eagleford Shale Operator (Shale Formations)

Application: A major operator in the Eagleford Shale in Texas was looking to reduce the inherent friction of drilling the build and horizontal sections of their wells without affecting their drilling fluid properties.

Product/Solution: EGS DFL-Non-Aqueous (DFL-NA)

Results: The addition of EGS DFL-NA resulted in a 39% reduction in drilling torque, 26% increase in slack off weight, 10% reduction in pick up weight and 50% reduction in ECDs. Moreover, EGS DFL-NA allowed an increase in sliding ROP and Bit Life by 100%. This added value improved drilling operations by over 25%.




Major Middle Eastern Operator in the Persian Gulf (Carbonate Formations)

Application: A major operator in the Middle East was experiencing difficulties with pipe hang up and sliding the drill string while cutting windows for side-track wells. They sought a friction reducing additive that would allow them to efficiently drill wells without altering their drilling fluid properties.

Product/Solution: EGS DFL-Aqueous

Results: After adding a concentration of 1% to the mud system, EGS DFL-A increased ROP from 15 fph to over 55 fph for an increase of over 333%. The rotating ROP increased from 60 fph to over 130 fph for an increase of over 110%.




Major Eagleford Shale Operator (Shale Formations)

Application: A major operator in the Eagleford Shale in Texas wanted to increase their ROP & Reduce their drilling pressures.

Product/Solution: EGS DFL-Aqueous (DFL-A)

Results: Operator saw a 50% reduction in SPP and ECDs and realized a 300% increase in ROP in the lateral.
