Careful Design

of a fluid system can reduce the overall cost of a well
 
 
 
 

From initial well research, optimization and planning, we develop a drilling fluids program that will best serve your needs. We take pride in the detail of our drilling fluid programs, including extensive offset analysis and area research studies.

Then, while the well is a being drilled we will provide active supervision, including daily monitoring of drilling parameters to ensure we are being proactive in making any necessary adjustments to the mud system. Once a well has been completed, we prepare a full recap and cost analysis. These recaps are added to our database to assist you in future area wells.

We offer comprehensive drilling hydraulics modelling services using HYDPRO software, which allows for full hydraulic well simulations, planning and monitoring.

In addition to modelling with our HYDPRO software, Matrix has access to complete laboratory facilities which are used in the design of mud systems and choosing additives. Our in-house technical expertise includes a BSc. Chemist.
