EvoMod® low-end rheology modifier viscosifies waterbased drilling fluids when down-hole temperatures exceed 275°F (135°C).
In high-temperature applications, EvoMod rheology modifier exhibits several superior and desirable performance characteristics:
- Effective in extremely low concentrations, where it contributes little to overall solids content
- Resistant to many common drilling contaminants particularly CO2
- Thermally stable above 400°F (204°C)
In the Evolution® fluid system, Newpark Drilling Fluids’ unique clay-free high-performance water-based fluid designed for unconventional horizontal wells, the EvoMod low-end rheology modifier boosts low-shear-rate rheology, improving barite suspension, especially when annular velocity is low or fluid density is high.
In Evolution applications in which bottomhole temperatures exceed 275°F (135°C), EvoMod concentrations of 0.1-2.0 lb/bbl provide desirable temperature stability and contamination resistance, and enhance system performance through formulation.
EvoMod low-end rheology modifier can also supplement NewGel™ viscosifier in water-based applications featuring demanding geological conditions. Pilot testing is strongly recommended.
EvoMod rheology modifier can be mixed directly into the system through the hopper.
