Guiding your Project to Success

Services

NorthStar Fluid Solutions provide fluid and fluid waste management services for your project. During the project bidding process, we work with our customers to determine the amount and type of product required, based on geology, rig capability and environmental regulations.
A fluids program is generated to streamline drilling fluid performance once the project starts.

Fluid Programs

NorthStar Fluid Solutions provides a custom engineered drilling fluids program to all clients. We offer Fluid Programs for Big Rig HDD, Light Rig HDD, Tunneling and Foundation Drilling. Our technical team can develop a fluid program for any project, adressing challenges and offering solutions.
EDFPs (Engineered Drilling Fluid Programs) are an integral part of the planning and bidding process. These programs give accurate estimates of the expected fluid volumes, geological conditions and product amounts required. This allows both owners and clients to prepare accordingly. The geology of the area will determine the composition of the system and eliminate any unnecessary additive further reducing the cost. During the geotechnical analysis, possible problem zones can be identified and a plan can be put into action sooner rather than later. Along with the volumes, products and geotechnical analysis, a guide is developed to assist crews with mix ratios, recommended advancement rates and solutions for unexpected problems. This reduces errors and down time.

Products

NorthStar Fluid Solutions products are developed to provide the best value and ease of use for our customers. Our philosophy is that a project should not require so many products in the fluids formulation that it becomes confusing or costly. We will not recommend complicated product combinations – only exactly what you need to get the job done on time and on budget.
From dry and readily dispersible products to more concentrated liquid products, our technical services department works hard to keep things simple and efficient. Our products are designed to provide the highest value drilling, boring, and coring projects.
