Newpark Drilling Fluids not only prides itself in the products and fluid systems we are able to provide our clients but also the engineering services. The group of drilling fluid engineers in the field and corporate offices are pivotal to the application of our products and fluid systems - this is engineering.
Newpark appreciates that we will not provide products and fluid systems to all the clients in Western Canada. We can however offer the Mud Doctor™ service. Newpark's Mud Doctor™ service is available to client's whom have chosen a drilling fluids supplier other than Newpark. Consider it a second opinion.
Quite often operations at the wellsite are not going so well and drilling fluid properties and decisions are under the microscope. If you feel more comfortable gaining a second opinion you can use the Mud Doctor™ service. The services include in part or in whole:
- Wellsite Visit - Expert Drilling Fluids Engineer
This drilling fluid engineer will visit the drilling rig and complete a full drilling fluid check. The drilling fluid engineer will communicate with the Drilling Engineer and evaluate the previous operations to gain an understanding which precipitated the deterioration of the drilling fluid system. A recommendation will be made to the Drilling Engineer and communication of the recommendations to the rig personnel will be coordinated.
- Drilling Fluid Report - Optimization Services Engineer
Following the wellsite visit of the drilling fluids engineer, a report will be generated. This report will evaluate the possible drilling fluid deficiencies which were affecting the drilling operation. A study of the area will evaluate historical data and provide a summary of all findings. The report will also detail possible improvements which could be incorporated into subsequent operations. This will include modifications to the drilling fluid design, mud up depths or even a drilling fluid system consideration.
This service is unique and effective. It will optimize your drilling program and ensure your drilling fluid is performing in the manner it should. Confidentiality agreements will be executed to protect all parties involved from all sensitive information.
