Drilling Fluids

Our approach to drilling fluids is tailored to each basin. Our purpose at Paragon is to deliver safe, repeatable and cost-effective drilling fluids solutions.

Reducing Total Cost

Drilling fluids for a healthy bottom line. Our expertise helps clients reduce days on well, reduce total cost and reduce waste.

Lack of borehole stability, uncertainty and lack of repetition throughout the drilling process, or even excessive fluid loss are some of the roadblocks we all
prefer to avoid during the drilling campaign.

The wrong drilling fluids assessment can quickly transform what was meant to be a profitable campaign into a large financial issue.

Our purpose at Paragon is to make your life easier and to a good extent, even boring by delivering safe, repeatable and cost-effective drilling fluids solutions.

Data analysis from drilling fluids jobs delivered to our customers in the last two years shows that we have helped them achieve major reductions in days on fluid.

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.

Local Testing Capabilities

A key element in our hyper-local approach to drilling fluids is our local testing capabilities. Paragon ISG has local testing capabilities including:

  • Full API mud check (WBM or OBM)
  • Particle size analysis
  • XRD testing
  • Dynamic filtration control
  • Lubricity
  • Mercurity intrusion pore size

Why choose Paragon for both Drilling Fluids & Solids Control?

At Paragon ISG we offer both Drilling Fluids and Solids Control services, either on their own or as a packaged solution. By hiring Paragon ISG for both Drilling Fluids and Solids Control, we will take ownership of the complete end-to-end process and measure success based on the end result for our client – fewer days on well, increased ft/day drilling speed, less waste, and ultimately less total cost.

Customer Responsiveness

One of our core values at Paragon ISG is “do the right thing”, and we take that commitment seriously on each job with every customer.

When we’re on a job with a customer, we are part of the team and invested in that customer’s success. We know in this industry that setbacks and hurdles come with the territory, and believe that it’s how we respond to those inevitable issues that sets us apart. If a customer has an issue and calls us up, even if that call is off hours or over a holiday, we’re picking up the phone and solving the issue.
