What People are Saying
Application: KCL/KHPA Fluid
The Aqua Shear reduced mixing time of the polymers from approximately two hours per 300 barrel batch to thirty minutes. My recommendation would be to utilize the Aqua Shear on all PHPA and/or polymer mud systems. It is simple, reliable, cost effective and performs as promised.
Application: Water Based Mud System
The Aqua Shear was used to our full satisfaction. During drilling the well, there was no sign of any loss of undissolved materials across the shakers. We recommend the use of the particular equipment in any case when dissolving chemicals in the mud system is crucial for an effective mud system.
Drilling mud costs were reduced by an average of 27.4% as a result of improve dispersion and hydration of all drilling fluid components. Total elimination of “fisheyes” and shake blinding enhance mud program efficiencies.
Application: Seawater/Gel/Polymers, SSW/ Starch/Polymer
The Aqua Shear is very cost effective and should be specified equipment on all drilling operations where powdered mud additives are used. It would also be very efficient for use with systems requiring shear to form emulsions such as oil muds and packer fluids.
Application: Mixing Gels, Polymers & Chemicals
The first 3 wells drilled through the same formation (without Aqua Shear) had drilling (mud) costs of $39.45, $39.80 and $35.69 per foot respectively. The mud costs per foot on the next well after installation of the Aqua Shear was $18.48 per foot, reflecting a 48% mud cost reduction.
Application: Mixing Gels & Fluid Polymers in Drilling Fluids
Mud mixing effectiveness improved dramatically with weight material and LCM being added while the unit was in “by-pass” mode and in normal operations we achieved maximum dispersion and hydration in building gels or other chemicals.
Application: PHPA Mud System
I have actually done some studies and calculations since you were here, and I can positively reveal that the use of the Aqua Shear system, whilst using PHPA mud system, including the rig time saved through not having to slow down, circulate the system until up to temperature, actually saved approximately $35,000.
