Investing in Ongoing
Innovation

Nothing defines Impact Fluid Solutions more than our commitment to driving innovation in downhole fluid science to overcome complex wellbore challenges. We accomplish this mission by combining deep oilfield experience with advanced chemistry.

The centerpiece of Impact’s ongoing scientific investment is our Global Technology Center in Cornwall, U.K. This world-class facility is our hub for pioneering next-generation fluid solutions—and backing them with the highest level of customer support.

Our Quality Assurance Support Lab in Houston focuses on ensuring product integrity and providing technical services to our customers in North and South America.

Advancing Wellbore Shielding® Science

Impact’s Wellbore Shielding® science continues to set the industry standard for conquering wellbore stability challenges. To develop unique solutions that fulfill oilfield needs, our scientists:
  • Design proprietary testing techniques and tools to simulate downhole conditions as accurately as possible
  • Enhance our research using leading-edge scientific equipment not found in conventional oilfield labs
  • Augment our in-house capabilities through strong partnerships with peers in the industry and academic community

Combining Diverse Scientific Disciplines

Scientists comprise a large portion of our company, representing diverse disciplines including chemical engineering, geology and petroleum engineering. Training programs for lab personnel run throughout the year. Our sales and field engineering teams are also educated at our Global Technology Center to ensure we provide expert customer support at every interaction.

Delivering Expert Technical Support

Impact provides comprehensive technical services before, during and after your project. Throughout the process, our scientists work closely with our sales team and field technicians to ensure you receive the solutions and support you need:

Analysis & Diagnosis
