PETROFORM – a mature field proven technology used in deep gas fields since 1995

ADDCON formate brines such as PETROFORM in the density range 11.5 – 18.3 ppg have been used in hundreds of HP/HT drilling or completion jobs over the past 20 years.

Published results of more than 50 core flooding tests with formates, conducted by a number of independent laboratories from around the world prove the non-damaging mechanisms of formate based drilling fluids.

These positive results from laboratory experiments are supported by actual production figures from numerous wells drilled and/or completed with formate brines. Early production analyses indicating skins of close to zero and production rates that are 30-40% higher than expectations.
