Water-based muds offer a wide variety of options, from low-cost and basic to highly inhibitive, performance-driven systems. AES Drilling Fluids offers the flexibility to design the most cost-effective system for the formation. AES Drilling Fluids offers a full suite of performance additives, including lubricants and shale inhibitors, to address technical challenges.
Through our extensive experience and technical expertise, AES Drilling Fluids designs fluids based upon needs. Whether it is reactive gumbo shales on the Gulf Coast or an extended reach lateral in the Permian Basin, AES Drilling Fluids has the capabilities to determine the best formulation for the application.
EnerCLEAR maximizes rate of penetration and extends bit life while inhibiting corrosion associated with brine systems.
EnerLITE provides precise density control through its non-continous oil phase. Saturated salt EnerLITE systems are eliminating an extra casing string in the Delaware Basin, saving operators hundreds of thousands of dollars per well in equipment and rig time.
EnerSEAL brings the unique rheology of MMH systems to a new level through its tolerance of contaminants that de-stabilized traditional systems. Its rheological profile provides superior suspension and loss mitigation.
