SERVICES

BIG RIG HDD MUD PROGRAMS

NorthStar Fluid Solutions provides more detailed mud programs and drilling waste management programs for customers utilizing larger HDD and tunneling machines. The customer provides the project details such as geotechnical reports, specified equipment and environmental regulations. We use this information to generate a long form Drilling Fluids Program that encompasses pump rates, ROP, fluid volumes and fluid formulations.

Our comprehensive troubleshooting sections ensure the client is prepared for any surprises during the drilling program, including recommendations for:

  • Loss of circulation
  • Caving sand and gravel, and
  • Reactive clay and shale.

We can produce waste management plans for any project - whether mechanical separation or in-situ solidification using our STAR-SORB class of superabsorbent polymers, NorthStar Fluid Solutions is available for our customers at all project stages.

Our technical support team ensures that the best products for the application are recommended - including environmental, logistics, economical and mixing considerations.

TRAINING AND MUD SCHOOLS

NorthStar Fluid Solutions Mud Schools or Mud Workshops are a great way for our customers to better understand the products and their application. They are held at customer locations and on field visits. This includes classroom/formal instruction and product demonstrations. A better understanding of the products and their applications will likely improve drilling efficiency and could cut fluid consumption costs.

Product training through mud schools/workshops and site visits reinforces the necessity of drilling fluids in project success. Constant customer contact ensures the best drilling fluid additive is utilized for optimal drilling performance. Speak with us about your mud school and training needs and we will work with your group to provide the best option.
