HYDRO-GUARD® System

Achieve maximum shale stabilization over wide temperature range
Baroid’s HYDRO-GUARD® water-based drilling fluid system provides maximum shale stabilization in highly reactive clays, with proven high performance in deepwater operations. Engineered for reliable inhibition and maximum drilling performance, this system can provide wellbore stability, high rates of penetration, and acceptable rheological properties over a wide range of temperatures. The system remains stable from 30°F through 300°F (-1°C through 148°C) up to 16.5 ppg, a first for a clay-free, low-solids, non-dispersed polymer drilling fluid system.

Developed in response to the need for a water based fluid that would approach the operational performance of invert emulsion fluids, the unique polymeric design of the HYDRO-GUARD system has shown to perform equal or similar to synthetic based fluids on several parameters, including clay inhibition, lubricity, and hole stability. 

Ideal for use in environmentally sensitive areas
HYDRO-GUARD water-based fluid offers several environmental and safety advantages over oil- and synthetic-based fluids, making it ideal for use in environmentally sensitive areas. With the benefit of allowing cuttings discharge based upon environmental restrictions the HYDRO-GUARD system delivers economic value in deepwater, shelf, and inland waters or on land. Since no oil is used in the formulation, the HYDRO-GUARD system eliminates the need for cuttings processing, monitoring equipment, and extra personnel, reducing overall drilling costs.
