INTELLIGENT MUD SOLUTIONS AS
IMS is a Stavanger based start-up company who have developed a unique skid based system, the Rheosense, which continuously and in real time measures drilling fluid properties such as rheology, density, and temperature with extreme accuracy. The measured data can be transferred anywhere, or read at the unit, and are used to monitor the health of the drilling fluid, to adjust drilling fluid parameters accurately, and as an enabler of drilling automation. Gone are the days of questionable quality and insufficient frequency when an engineer had to take manual samples, and measure properties with rudimentary equipment. Rheosense has been developed in cooperation with Equinor, and has been thoroughly tested at Equinor’s fluids laboratory in Bergen and at Baker Hughes’ fluid mixing facility at the Mongstad base.
Unique Value Proposition: Enable drilling automation. Reduce non-productive time related to wellbore issues attributed to poor control of drilling fluid. Improve HSE. Reduce drilling fluid cost.
