Filtration is the continual process of removing suspended materials (weighting agents, drilled solids, rust, perforating debris, scale, etc.) from the clear-brine fluids (CBF) prior to placement of the completion assembly.
Following displacement into the well, the CBF is continually circulated and filtered until residual particles are removed and the cleanliness of the fluid falls within specified limits. Removal of these contaminants from the CBF is required, otherwise, residual materials can be carried into the formation or perforations, creating damage and negatively impacting production.
Newpark offers a suite of engineered filtration systems for onshore, offshore, and deepwater filtration operations.
