High-performance unconventional drilling and superior sustainability. In one.

Unlock the potential of unconventional wells

Drill unconventional wells faster and at lower costs while improving operation sustainability.

Our next-generation Nviros™ high-performance water-based mud is field-proven to be a more sustainable and efficient alternative to oil-based muds in unconventional and extended-reach wells. At a fraction of the fluids cost.

Strike the perfect balance between drilling performance and operational sustainability

  • Reducing fluids and waste trucking costs
  • Lessen the amount of waste you send to landfill
  • Leverage the benefits of using produced water
  • Improve wellbore lubrication for higher ROP
  • Reduce drilling time and overall drilling costs
  • Cut energy consumption and CO2 emissions
