QMAX HYDRO: Water-Based Drilling Fluids

Anchor USA offers a variety of water-based fluids for sensitive formations and/or where environmental concerns require an alternative to non-aqueous fluids. These systems are clear water/clear brine based, and are generally classified based on the presence of a clay inhibitor and the use of polymers for their formulation. We also offer high-performance water-based fluids for more challenging well environments.

QMAXDRILL™

QMAXDRILL

Our high-performance water-based fluid, QMAXDRILL, is custom formulated and compatible with most fluid products. It is used for formulating systems for drilling intermediate sections containing sensitive formations and clay containing reservoirs.

 

MAXDIRECT

MAXDIRECT

MAXDIRECT is our low density direct emulsion water-based drilling fluid. This non-inhibitive fluid has a density lower than water, and can be transformed into a stable foam direct emulsion system.

 

AMMODRILL

AMMODRILL

Anchor USA’s AMMODRILL is a high-performance water-based drilling fluids system that brings an alternative for conventional water-based drilling fluid. AMMODRILL utilizes a powerful polymer to provide outstanding rheology properties, highly reliable suspension and improved hole cleaning.
