BaraShale™ Lite Direct Emulsion Fluid System

Designed to keep full salt saturation with reduced density to help increase drilling efficiency

The BaraShale™ Lite fluid system contains a new proprietary emulsifier that tightly combines the base fluid, which consists of brine to prevent salt washout, and oil to lighten the mud weight. The result is a fluid system that helps prevent lost circulation and washout while minimizing dilution and waste volumes.

By reducing the need for displacements and enabling you to mix on the fly instead of batch mixing the fluids, BaraShale Lite can help enhance operational efficiency. You can also use field brine in the fluid rather than trucking in fresh brine, and unlike other water-based fluids, this fluid can be re-used on multiple wells.

Helps reduce costs

The BaraShale Lite fluid system can help you lower costs through the reduction of downhole losses and salt washout. When not prevented, these issues can lead to costly non-productive time. Because the system requires less dilution to reduce the density, waste volumes are lowered helping to minimize overall disposal costs.

Unlike other water-based fluids, this formulation can be reused across multiple wells, further reducing total operational costs, You may also be able to change casing designs so that salt sections and lower formations can be drilled together to eliminate the need to run extra casing strings.

Delivering real results

The BaraShale Lite system has successfully helped operators address wellbore challenges and reduce waste disposal costs in the Permian Basin. For example, aggregate cost savings of approximately USD 854,000 were realized for the first seven wells. This was mainly due to a 70 percent reduction in waste haul-offs, as well as savings from reduced washouts and lower cement volumes. The system has since been used to drill approximately 100 wells across Texas and New Mexico with similar results.
