Completion Fluids Filtration

Completion fluids and workover fluids filtration maximizes yield from oil or gas field

The purpose of completion fluids filtration or filtering of well bore clean up fluids, also known as brine, is to prevent the formation of downhole contamination. These contaminations reduce production and shorten the productive life of the well. Contamination can occur during many stages of the process. Any time fluid with a solid content is put into the well bore; there is a chance of damaging the well. Dutch Filtration provides reliable and efficient solutions for completion fluids and workover fluids filtration.

How completion fluids filtration works

Completion fluids filtration will clean up contamination, in any size or form. Drilling operations produce unwanted materials on the casing or pipe string. All these materials contribute to the amount of solids in the fluid. With completion fluids and workover fluids filtration the solid content in the fluid will be filtered, with the result that the solid content doesn’t get the chance to damage the well. Effective filtration service requires a cooperative effort on the part of all those involved in drilling and production, so that formation damage can be minimized. In the past, operators have generally tried to have clean, solids-free fluids in the well bore before perforating intervals. Porous and permeable rock acts like a deep bed filter for suspended particles, and even a solids-free fluid may damage a formation if not chemically compatible with the formation rock. 

Filtration has evolved from old surface filtering systems with low flow volume to highly sophisticated systems. Although filtering can be expensive and time consuming, a case for filtering fluids can be made for every completed well and workover where the net production has been increased more than enough to pay for the difference.

Completion fluids and workover fluids filtration minimizes formation damages

Effective filtration by use of completion fluids filtration requires a cooperative effort of all those involved in drilling and production. In the past, operators generally tried to have clean, solids-free fluids in the well bore before perforating intervals. Porous and permeable rock acts as a deep bed filter for suspended particles, and even a fluid free of solids can damage a formation if it is not chemically compatible with the formation rock. Today, completion fluids filtration solves that problem by being chemically compatible with the reservoir formation.

Completion fluids filtration is the best solution in many cases

Filtration has evolved from old surface filtering systems with low flow volume to highly sophisticated systems. Dutch Filtration is an extremely cost-effective solution for completion fluids filtration and workover fluids filtration for every completed well. It increases net production more than enough to pay for the difference.
