Temperature Related Risks
High Temperature - High Risks - High Costs
As wells grow in complexity and risk, the need to consider elements beyond the application of a mud cooler becomes essential. Within any drilling system, both temperature and pressure collectively affect the dynamic energy conditions specific to each well.
High pressure, high temperature wells (HPHT) are in fact “HIGH ENERGY” wells. Parameters such as hole size, flow rate, drilling fluid rheology, and geothermal gradient can all have a direct thermal impact on temperature conditions within the wellbore and the surface drilling system. With over 35 years of industry specific well temperature control experience, Drill Cool Systems can increase your ability to safely and successfully help control your temperature related risks.

The hazards within the wellbore put your team and your project at risk (potentially costing you millions of dollars).
Take the time to understand those temperature related risks – Drill Cool Systems Can Help.
How Can Drill Cool Help Manage Temperature Related Risks?
Thermal Risk Assessment
Determine if your drilling conditions are putting your project and personnel at risk
With our Thermal Risk Assessment, together we can determine if your drilling conditions are putting your project and personnel at risk. With a Drill Cool solution our engineers will work closely with your drilling team to ensure overall system safety. We are available from well inception through production to ensure all temperature related risks have been properly characterized and mitigated.Take assessment now
The safety of rig personnel can be at risk due to elevated drilling fluid temperatures. Human skin that comes in contact with drilling fluid or equipment hotter than 65°C (150°F) can result in a serious burn in just a matter of a few seconds.
The integration of a mud cooler into your high temperature drilling operation can typically result in a 3% to 5% reduction in drilling fluid maintenance costs and promote the greater control of equivalent drilling fluid densities (ECD) throughout the system.
The Drill Cool System can result in a net costs savings over the duration of the high temperature well by substantially increasing the operational life of mud pump expendables and other surface equipment.
