Join us for an interactive tour of Newpark Technolgy Center, a home to the industry’s one-of-a-kind Downhole Simulation Cell (DSC).
Newpark Drilling Fluids provides drilling fluid products and technical services globally. Drilling projects involving complex subsurface conditions, such as horizontal, directional, or deepwater drilling require constant monitoring and critical engineering support.
The Newpark Technology Center is home to the industry’s one-of-a-kind Downhole Simulation Cell (DSC). The DSC is a device that returns preserved core samples to in situ temperatures and pressures, and circulates a potential drilling fluid while drilling with a microbit.
The DSC allows its users to observe drilling fluid system performance in simulated real-world conditions. This unique technology used in the development of proprietary products and systems allow for application-specific drilling fluids designed to optimize drilling performance through enhanced wellbore stability in specific geologies. By allowing researchers to observe, measure, and evaluate formations under actual downhole conditions, test results from the DSC provide guidance for fluid optimization.
