A range of agents to increase fluid density
TPE provides barite, hematite, and calcium carbonate material to impart density to all water and invert emulsion drilling fluids. Weighting agents are used to control formation pressures, prevent formation caving, and facilitate the pulling of dry pipe.
Get a lower solids content for higher ROP.
Formulate drilling fluids to 14 lbm/galUS.
Increase drilling fluid density.
Use a high-quality drilling-grade barite.
