TFS, The Fluids Specialists, was formed to offer operators an increased and more flexible range of options for managing both the technical and commercial performance of their drilling fluids and related services and service providers.  Our unique range of services are designed to increase the overall project value derived from drilling fluids and associated services.

Drilling Fluids, Drilling Waste Management and their associated services are always a significant expense in the well construction process and these services are also capable of delivering value many times their costs.

TFS ensure that maximum value is brought to a project by focusing on three key areas:

  • Independent and scalable technical and business management support;
  • Independent laboratory services and QA/QC programs;
  • Technical and business intelligence software and data management
