“Our customer focus has made us a better company as we have customized and engineered solutions for every need and application, providing opportunities for our people and driving our development of resources and technologies.”
A foundation of problem-solving
When customers call on M-I SWACO*, they want solutions. It could be a matter of finding the right drilling fluid for a fragile formation or developing a complete program for collecting, managing and treating drilling wastes from an offshore field. Regardless of the need, the important thing is that M-I SWACO responds to and solves the problem — any size, anywhere, any time. The company has grown by anticipating and responding to what operators and drilling contractors need for the life cycle of their wells — from well construction, completion and production to drilling waste management, Waste Management (WI), produced-water treatment, and even pipeline-flow enhancement and gas sweetening. If a situation calls for something new, we will invent it. If a product we have is almost the answer, we will modify it until it answers the need exactly. The bottom line: M-I SWACO and its people are customer-focused and solutions-driven.
Solutions for fluids-related problems
Within M-I SWACO, we have the ability to solve problems that range from simple to complex. Dedicated teams can design entire fluids-management systems, complete with equipment, instrumentation, control systems and automation software. We have made considerable investments in research and engineering facilities as well as laboratories and field-support operations. These facilities, and the capable and talented people who operate them, give M-I SWACO a distinct competitive edge.
We have helped operators drill a majority of the world’s deepwater and ultra-deepwater wells. M-I SWACO has refined the concept and development of Reservoir Drill-In Fluids (RDFs) that help operators achieve the highest returns from their valuable reservoirs with specialized fluid systems that protect production zones. We are helping operators realize true economic and environmental benefits with waste injection to safely dispose of drilling wastes, excess drilling fluid, contaminated rainwater and even cleanup waste. To ensure our customers’ on-going success, M-I SWACO is a leading provider of production chemicals that keep wells producing under a wide range of conditions and chemistries.
