Drilling Fluids

Our approach to drilling fluids is “hyper-local” and tailored to each basin. We track results on each job and use our extensive local testing capabilities to attain superior drilling efficiency.

Hyper-Local Expertise

Our Drilling Fluids expertise helps clients reduce days on well, reduce total cost and reduce waste.

At Paragon ISG, our experienced technicians and mud engineers prepare in-depth fluids programming, including hydraulic analysis to ensure effective hole cleaning, optimal penetration rates, and improved drilling efficiency.

We offer air/tophole chemicals, oil/synthetic based mud systems, and water based mud systems. All of this is backed by experienced crews and a company fleet of bulk trailers, flatbeds and tanker trucks.

Case Study

Reducing Days ON WELL


A recent customer in the Marcellus Basin commented that our unique approach to managing the Drilling Fluids increased efficiency and reduced days on well. Through our proprietary and data-based proactive approach, we were able to formulate optimal drilling fluid concentrations for this customer’s well site. This tailor-made approach ultimately helped them drill more efficiently, reduce waste and spend fewer days on well.

  • Particle size analysis
  • XRD testing
  • Dynamic filtration control
  • Lubricity
  • Mercurity intrusion pore size
