PETROFORM stands for:


Reduced well delivery time and costs 

Faster delivery of oil and gas reserves

Improved well control and safety 

Precise reservoir definition 



Formate brines make safe and reliable solids-free well control fluids for any well operation.
The absence of weighting solids in formate brines brings economic benefits to all well
operations, from drilling through to completion, workover, well suspension and well
stimulation.  The absence of weighting solids also makes formate brines easy to recycle
and reuse time after time. 

Fast well delivery time

Drilling and completing in simple solids-free formate brines is much faster than with
solidsweighted traditional fluids. The presence of solid weighting agents in a wellbore
slows down all aspects of drilling and completion.
Drilling solids-free with formate brines has beneficial effect on well control, wellbore
stability, hydraulics, ECD, bit performance, bit life, torque and drag, differential sticking,
NP and completion times.
These benefits translate into time and costs savings on every well. The effects are
particularly noticeable while drilling unconventional shale oil and shale gas formations
where ROPs with potassium formate can be 50-100% higher than in wells drilled with
oil-based muds. 


Good to know




Replacing traditional fluids with
clear formate brinesin drilling and completion
operations has a remarkable effect on
the economics of oil and gas field
development projects.
