Ultra-Low-Invasion Fluid Technology Increases Operational Window to Enhance Drilling, Reduce Damage in Unstable Venezuela Formations

In the unstable Naricual Formation with high pressure differentials, PDVSA incorporated Impact’s FLC 2000® to the drilling fluid to successfully complete a 14-well project and:

  • Minimize fluid-related NPT
  • Eliminate casing strings
  • Reduce operating costs
  • Reduce formation damage
  • Increase ultimate production

See how Impact’s Wellbore Shielding® science helped the largest operator in Venezuela maintain wellbore stability and maximize drilling efficiency.
