Formate brine for HPHT drilling
Reservoirs with high pressures and temperatures are frequent targets for exploration and development. But pressure and temperature have a big influence on the physical and chemical properties of drilling processes and technologies. Formate Brine is an ideal drilling fluid to meet these challenges. Cesium Formate brines have been used successfully in open-hole and close-hole completion and drilling operations since the late 1990s.
Formate brine drilling fluid can provide the following benefits:
